Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salaam Fayad has been trying to coordinate a meeting with Likud chairman and opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu for the past several weeks, the Kuwait-based Al Jareeda reported Saturday.Even the Palestinians and Egyptians recognize Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s days are numbered but how to get Olmert to see it that?
Palestinian sources have told the paper that the two were scheduled to meet in Sharm e-Sheikh last week but the meeting was cancelled due to technical difficulties. A meeting between the two is expected to take place in the coming days.
The Jerusalem Post could not confirm the report.
According to the report, PA President Mahmoud Abbas and top Palestinian negotiator Ahmed Qurei were also making efforts to meet Netanyahu. Netanyahu met with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak last week and discussed Israeli-Palestinian negotiations with him.
