JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas are holding a summit to discuss peace efforts. It might be their last before Olmert leaves office.
The meeting was set for late Tuesday, after the daytime fast of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
The two leaders pledged to try for an agreement by January, but no breakthroughs have been reported.
Israeli officials said progress has been made, but Palestinian said gaps remain, and there must be agreement on all issues.
Olmert is facing multiple corruption allegations. He said he would resign after Wednesday's party primary to pick a new leader. But he might remain in office until next year if his resignation leads to an election.
