Palestine Liberation Organization leader Yasir Arafat will attend the international non-governmental organizations conference on Palestine at United Nations head-quarters in Geneva this week.

The meeting, which opens Wednesday as Israel and the Palestinians hold talks in Washington over the future of the territories, is one of several held annually by the NGOs under the auspices of the U.N. Palestine Rights Committee.

Among some 200 expected participants are Israeli peace activist Abie Nathan and former Knesset member Meir Pa’il.

The theme of the conference is “Working for Peace — European Coordination.”
