PA chief Mahmoud Abbas is to meet with Israeli premier Ehud Olmert in occupied Jerusalem on Monday to discuss the American-backed settlement process, Saeb Uraikat, who is in charge with the PLO"s negotiation, said on Saturday.

He did not elaborate further in his radio statement.

Olmert is currently an acting premier after he resigned his post over corruption scandals on 21/9/2008. He was quoted by Israeli officials as saying that he would continue in the negotiations process until his last day in office. The Israeli general elections are scheduled on 10/2/3009.

The Abbas-Olmert meeting follows a series of military escalation strikes by the Israeli occupation forces on the Gaza Strip that killed a dozen Palestinians over the past week other than tightening the siege on the Strip.
