Sharon to meet Abbas
Last updated: 2005-02-02
Mr Sharon's office said Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is to host the summit Tuesday, which would be the highest-level Israeli-Palestinian meeting in nearly four years.
There was no immediate comment from the Palestinians.
And in Cairo, an senior Egyptian official said was too early to talk about a summit.
A summit has been expected since Mr Abbas, who was elected to succeed late Yasser Arafat last month, took steps to stop Palestinian militants from attacking Israelis.
Israel responded by cutting back on military operations. Israel is also discussing plans for a pullback from several West Bank cities.
