Arafat, Peres to Meet

PLO leader Yasser Arafat and Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres will meet in Norway on Saturday to try to restart Israel's delayed withdrawal from Gaza and Jericho, Egypt announced Thursday.


Foreign Minister Amr Moussa made the announcement after a Thursday meeting in Cairo between Arafat and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.


"There is a good opportunity that a Palestinian-Israeli agreement will be reached soon," Moussa said.


Talks between the PLO and Israel on implementing a Palestinian self-rule accord signed last September have stalled over security issues.
