Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas indefinitely delayed a meeting with Vice Premier and Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz in the face of popular opposition to the meeting in the Palestinian street, the Bethlehem-based Ma'an news agency reported Saturday.




The meeting, planned to take place Sunday in Ramallah, was originally scheduled at the behest of Mofaz, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said Thursday. The meeting would have been the highest-level direct contact between Israel and the Palestinians since peace talks broke down in 2010.
