Efforts are underway to arrange a meeting between Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, PLO Secretary-General Yasser Abed Rabbo declared Thursday.

Meanwhile, the US Administration has told the Palestinians that it has "new ideas" as to how the peace process should be revived. A US emissary is expected to arrive in the region next week with the ideas.

Abed Rabbo said that Israel was not taking any political or practical measures to pave the way for a meeting between Abbas and Netanyahu.

He added that Israel would first have to meet some of the Palestinians' condition before a summit between the two men takes place.
