Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas arrived at the residence of Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert today for the first meeting between the two leaders in seven weeks. A top Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erakat, earlier said Abbas and Olmert would discuss a mutual ceasefire, lifting the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip and implementing the 2003 Middle East roadmap to peace agreement.
