Jericho summit seen

The next summit between Ehud Olmert and Mahmoud Abbas is expected to take place in the Palestinian territories. Israeli officials said Wednesday that the prime minister would likely meet the Palestinian Authority president next week in the West Bank city of Jericho. It would be the first Israeli-Palestinian summit in territory controlled by the Palestinian Authority. Palestinian officials have said the meeting will take place June 7, but Israel did not immediately confirm the date.
