Now this looks more posative: Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has agreed to meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, a senior Palestinian official said Thursday. The official claimed that Abbas has officially informed the US Administration of his agreement to meet with Netanyahu. The official was quoted by the Palestinian Quds Net News Agency as saying that Abbas has dropped his previous pre-conditions for holding a summit with Netanyahu. The official did not specify the nature of the pre-conditions. Abbas had said in the past that he did not want a meeting with Netanyahu to serve as a photo-up opportunity that would serve Israel's interests alone.
