Riyadh: Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas held talks with Saudi King Salman on Tuesday on his first visit to the kingdom since last month's landmark reconciliation accord between rival factions Hamas and Fatah.

"During the session, the (two leaders) reviewed the latest developments in the Palestinian arena," state-run Saudi Press Agency said in a brief statement.

Under an Egyptian-brokered deal signed between Abbas's Fatah and the Islamist Hamas movement on October 12, the Palestinian Authority is due to resume full control of the Gaza Strip by December 1.

Abbas's visit to Riyadh comes after Hamas handed over control of the Gaza Strip's borders with Egypt and Israel to the Palestinian Authority last week, in the first key test of the accord.
