European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana met Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah on Saturday. The meeting came after he toured the Gaza Strip on Friday - the highest ranking European official to visit the territory since it was overrun by Hamas in June 2007. Solana did not meet with Hamas leaders, who are boycotted internationally as a terror group. On Monday, international donors will meet in Egypt for a conference on Gaza's reconstruction. The Palestinians are seeking $2.8 billion dollars.
