Erekat: Olmert and Abbas preparing to meet

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said Tuesday that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert were making preparations for holding a meeting. Both leaders have called in recent weeks for a meeting with the other as a way to re-ignite long-stalled peace talks. "The preparation for the meeting ... is ongoing," Erekat said. "Once the preparations are concluded, the meeting will take place immediately. No date has been set yet."
