Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has been meeting the leaders of neighboring Jordan and Egypt in a bid to gain diplomatic support for the now defunct two-state solution before the new U.S. administration takes office

Struggling at home with an ongoing economic crisis and surging coronavirus cases, Abbas met Sunday with Jordan’s King Abdullah and flew to Cairo for talks on Monday with Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, Arab News reported.

Abbas is hoping to regain some momentum and relevance before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on January 20. During his campaign, Biden said he hopes to resurrect the two-state solution, and that he would reverse several decisions made by President Donald Trump by restoring U.S. taxpayer aid to the Palestinians and allowing them to reopen their Washington office.
