Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will likely meet Tuesday, as part of their preparations for a US-hosted Mideast peace conference later this fall, a Palestinian official said Saturday. Olmert and Abbas have met five times in recent months, in an attempt to build trust and find a way to restart peace talks that broke down in 2001. Both leaders also appointed negotiating teams that are to draft a joint statement of principles ahead of the conference. In the previous five sessions, Abbas and Olmert met privately, and later briefed their aides, who then began jotting down notes. In the upcoming meeting, tentatively set for Tuesday, the drafting teams might at some point participate in the talks, said Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat. David Baker, an Israeli government official, said a firm date for the meeting has not yet been set.
