Palestinian Authority signs strategic partnership deal during Abbas visit to China

China and the Palestinian Authority signed a “strategic partnership” when President Mahmoud Abbas visited Beijing on Wednesday, China said.

Mohammed Mustafa, economic adviser to Mr Abbas, said earlier this week that the two nations had formed an agreement in principle over Chinese funding for four West Bank projects including a solar power installation, a factory for solar panel production, a steel plant and road infrastructure development.

Mr Abbas, on his fifth official visit to China in almost 20 years at the head of the PA, said he would like to establish a free trade zone between the two nations.
