Erekat: Abbas, Olmert to meet Tuesday in Jerusalem

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will meet Tuesday in an effort to push ahead troubled US-backed peace talks, Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said Sunday. The meeting will take place at Olmert's Jerusalem residence, said Erekat. Olmert's office did not immediately comment. Erekat did not confirm media reports that the two sides have moved closer on deciding the fate of Jerusalem. "There are talks going on, but I wouldn't use the word progress," Erekat said.
