Abbas: More meetings with Olmert to be held

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said Sunday he'll have more meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Abbas spoke after a meeting with visiting US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. He said he discussed with Rice a plan for moving peace-making forward and "for additional meetings with the prime minister of Israel." "This is part of the bilateral relations with Israel, as well as a future vision we are all seeking," Abbas said. Abbas met twice with Olmert in recent weeks.
