A meeting originally scheduled for next week between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Paris, at the initiative of French President Nicholas Sarkozy, will be postponed, apparently to late November, after the US congressional elections and just ahead of the Euro-Mediterranean Conference in Barcelona.

The rescheduled meeting will bring together Netanyahu, Abbas, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

"The meeting is a preparatory meeting for the Euro-Mediterranean Conference," the Prime Minister's Office said in a statement. "Following joint discussions it has been decided to reschedule."

Palestinian Authority chief Negotiator Saeb Erekat also confirmed that the meeting has been postponed.
