Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert are to meet in Jerusalem for talks over the future of the Middle East peace process, it was reported Tuesday.

The meeting is to take place in Jerusalem on Wednesday, the Palestinian news agency Maan reported, citing Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, reported dpa.

An Olmert spokesman was not available for a reaction.

The meeting would be the first since Olmert's announcement that he would step down after the internal party primary elections of his Kadima Party in mid-September.
