RAMALLAH, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will meet this week with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in the Jordanian capital of Amman, a well-informed Palestinian official said on Monday.
"They are supposed to discuss the recent developments in the peace process," the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Xinhua.
The source expected that Kerry, who mediates the peace talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis, would discuss with Abbas a framework peace plan supposed to be proposed before the peace negotiations end in April.
Earlier on Monday, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erikat warned that the failure of the current Palestinian-Israeli peace talks will lead to the collapse of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA).
It is the first time a Palestinian official warns of a possible collapse of the PNA if the U.S.-backed negotiations fail.
The peace talks, which were resumed last July and are set to end this April, have not made any tangible progress so far.
