Report: Livni, Abbas to meet at Swiss conference

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas will meet on Thursday on the sidelines of a high-profile conference in Switzerland to explore ways to resume long-stalled peacemaking, an Abbas aide said. Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev confirmed the two would meet, but did not specify when. Yasser Abed Rabbo, who is in Davos with Abbas, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that the PA chairman would meet with Livni in an effort to push forward recent efforts to get negotiations back on track.
