What a shock…
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas reached out to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on Korea Liberation Day to offer his congratulations. From Palestinian Media Watch:
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas today sent congratulations to the ruler of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, in honor of the country’s Liberation Day. In the statement released by WAFA, the official PA news agency, Abbas wished Jong-un “all health and happiness.” His greetings did not mention the international tension following Jong-un’s threat to fire missiles toward the US Pacific territory of Guam in honor of Korea’s Liberation Day.
Abbas wished “the Korean people continued stability and prosperity; and that the historical friendly relations between Palestine and North Korea and their two peoples will continue to develop and grow.”
Earlier this year, Abbas sent his “blessings” to the Iranian regime in honor of the 1979 Iranian revolution:
“[Chairman of the Palestinian National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) Salim] Al-Za’anoun conveyed to Iran’s president [Hassan Rouhani] President Mahmoud Abbas’ blessings to the Iranian people and its leadership on the occasion of the 38th anniversary of the Iranian Revolution.”
