Palestinian official: Arafat may Meet Clinton in US Next Month
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat is expected to meet US President Bill Clinton in Washington early next month, a Palestinian official told AFP on Wednesday.
"It is expected that Presidents Arafat and Clinton will meet at the White House at the beginning of November," the official said.
Clinton contacted Arafat on Tuesday night proposing that the Palestinian leader and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak meet separately with him in Washington in a bid to halt almost a month of deadly clashes in the Palestinian territories – GAZA CITY (AFP)
