The Permanent Observer of Palestine at the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, said on Tuesday that he is promoting efforts to hold the International Peace Conference requested by President Mahmoud Abbas.

We are speeding up contacts and coordination before the UN Security Council's next meeting, due for January 26, confirmed the diplomat, who was quoted by AlQuds daily.

According to Mansour, the objective is to listen to suggestions and examine UN member states' stances on Abbas's proposal to convene this forum.
