PM Olmert, PA Chairman Abbas to meet Tuesday

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will meet Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday, government officials said late Sunday. The officials said the meeting would take place Tuesday afternoon in Jerusalem. They spoke on condition of anonymity because no formal announcement has been made. Earlier Sunday, PA negotiator Saeb Erekat said the two would meet "in a couple of days," and a preparatory session with aides would take place Monday. Olmert and Abbas have been meeting regularly in recent months. Their last summit was earlier this month in the West Bank town of Jericho, the first time they met outside Israel.
