RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Malta’s President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca started her official one-day visit to Palestine, on Thursday.

Upon Colerio Preca's arrival in the central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, she laid a wreath on the grave of the late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat.

The Vice Chancellor of Bethlehm University, Brother Peter Bray, welcomed Colerio Preca on campus, along with the Palestinian Minister of Tourism and Antiques Rula Maayah and Head of the Representative Office of Malta Reuben Gauci.
