JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — President Mahmoud Abbas has awarded Amr Moussa the Palestine Star on conclusion of his role as secretary-general of the Arab League, officials said Friday.

Palestinian Authority Minister of Foreign Affairs Riyad Al-Maliki said Abbas granted the medal to Moussa in appreciation of his brave and supportive stances toward Palestinians as leader of the Arab body.

Abbas also commended the Arab League chief’s continued support to the Palestinian leadership in its efforts to defend Palestinian rights and establish an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital, Al-Maliki said.

The medal is the highest honor awarded by the PA. A ceremony to deliver the award would be held on Abbas’ next visit to Cairo, Al-Maliki said.
