Vice Premier Shaul Mofaz intends to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in order to try to get the peace process off the ground, Mofaz said in an interview with Channel 2 Saturday.

Advancing the peace process was one of the four issues that served as the basis for the coalition agreement between Likud and Kadima.

Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On mocked Mofaz, saying that after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced plans to build 851 housing units in the West Bank, "talks between Mofaz and Abbas will help negotiations like cups of wind help the dead."
