RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — President Mahmoud Abbas met with Quartet envoy Tony Blair in Ramallah on Sunday, official news agency Wafa reported.

Abbas briefed Blair on the latest developments in the peace process and efforts to achieve non-member status at the United Nations.

Blair also met with PA finance minister Nabil Qassis and applauded efforts by the Palestinian Authority to improve the economic situation.

Frustrated by rising prices and high levels of unemployment, Palestinians took to the streets in September to protest the dire economic outlook.
