Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will meet again on Sunday, a spokeswoman for Olmert confirmed Wednesday. The venue will be set later in the day, spokeswoman Miri Eisin said. Saeb Erekat, a confidant of Abbas's, said the Palestinians invited Olmert to meet in the West Bank town of Jericho, but hadn't received a response. Abbas and Olmert promised US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice last month to hold talks every two weeks. Olmert aides have said he would only talk to Abbas about security and humanitarian issues, as well as a "general political horizon" that they did not define. Divisive issues could be addressed once Palestinians halt their rocket fire into Israel from Gaza and release an Israeli soldier captured nine months ago, they said.
