Rice schedules talks with Palestinian president
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank this week, U.S. and Palestinian officials said Tuesday.

The meeting will be held Thursday between sessions of a foreign ministers' conference Rice will attend in neighboring Jordan, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said. The talks will be held in the West Bank city of Jericho, he said.

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat announced the meeting earlier Tuesday.

McCormack said Rice was likely to have other meetings around the Forum for the Future conference and would remain behind after President Bush holds his Wednesday-Thursday talks with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. But no talks with Israeli officials have been scheduled yet, he said.
