Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is heading to New York Sunday with a senior delegation to attend the United Nations General Assembly and apply for full membership in the international body.

Abbas will hold intensive meetings with world leaders to promote for the Palestinian move to get Palestine recognized as an independent state, said Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Al- Maliki.

There are no plans for a bilateral meeting between Abbas and U. S. President Barack Obama, whose administration opposes the Palestinian approach to the UN and threatened to veto the Palestinian application through the Security Council, Al-Maliki told Voice of Palestine radio.

Obama is set to meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The two men share the same view that the recognition of the Palestinian state should come through a negotiated peace agreement.
