Abbas to 'Sukkah Hop' to Olmert in Jerusalem

Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas will once again meet Prime Minister Ehud Olmert this week – in the latter's sukkah at the Prime Minister's residence in Jerusalem. The pair will attempt to hammer out a joint statement to be presented at the summit set for next month in Washington.

At a meeting Friday with Abbas in New York, Foreign Minister Tsipi Livni said that “we must be brave enough to make important decisions, but smart enough to make sure we progress in a realistic manner, in order to ensure that the process does not fail.”
