Israeli, Palestinian FAs agree to ‘pursue dialogue’ after meeting

ZURICH – The heads of the Israeli and Palestine football associations agreed to “pursue dialogue” after meeting at FIFA headquarters on Sunday, soccer’s governing body said in a statement.

However, FIFA did not say whether the Palestine association (PFA) had agreed to drop a proposal for a vote at the FIFA Congress later this month to suspend Israel from international football. “The main purpose of the meeting was to discuss the request made by the PFA for a proposal to suspend the Israeli FA at the upcoming FIFA Congress,” said FIFA, adding that its president Sepp Blatter also took part in the meeting. “Both member associations agreed to pursue the dialogue.”
