Turkey's Gul cancels meeting with Palestinian Abbas

The presidents of Turkey and Palestine cancelled their meetings on Wednesday due to a health problem.

Turkey's President Abdullah Gul was scheduled to meet his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas, who is actually visiting Turkey.

However, Gul's tete-a-tete meeting and joint press conference with Abbas were cancelled as Gul suffered from cold.

Gul and Abbas will meet over dinner.

Meanwhile, Gul hosted Wednesday a luncheon for Turkey's ambassadors who convened in the capital Ankara for a conference.

The meeting was closed to press.

Turkish ambassadors' conference started in Ankara on Monday. Turkish envoys are discussing Turkey's foreign policy issues at the week-long meeting.
