The spokesman said President Mubarak and Olmert will review ways of clearing the atmosphere for arranging a three way summit attended by Abbas.
On Sunday, Olmert told CNN that Abbas is a very weak leader and does not represent the Palestinians in order to have with him serious talks about peace.
Head of the PLO Negotiations Affairs Department, Saeb Ereikat, rejected olmert's statements saying today that Ereikat Abbas is the elected President of the Palestinian people and Chairman of the PLO, which signed peace accords with the Israeli side.
He added that the Palestinian side is ready to immediately resume peace negotiations on the basis of implementing international legitimacy resolutions.
Ereikat made it clear that the Palestinian government has not ruled out the right of the President to lead negotiations.
"The President has reiterated that he is committed to put the results of negotiations with the Israelis to a general referendum," Ereikat said.
"We can not deny that there is no Palestinian crisis, but at the same time, the PM Ehud Olmert should not forget that there is Israeli occupation and continues its aggressions against the Palestinian people," Ereikat said. "The weakness of the PNA is simply because the continued military agression against its infrastructures."
