Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz is set to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah on Sunday.
The sit down has been in the works for months, and Mofaz reportedly requested the meeting before joining Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition in May.
The face-to-face will be the highest-level meeting since peace talks broke down in 2010, though a Palestinian mediator said the interview should not be seen as a progression toward that end.
"I do not know what Mofaz will bring with him, but it is not going to be negotiations," Saeb Erakat told a Palestinian radio station.
Earlier this year, Netanyahu was scheduled to meet with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, but Fayyad never showed. Sunday’s event, should it go through, could pave the way for an Abbas-Netanyahu meeting in the future
The US has been putting pressure on the two sides to meet, though Netanyahu has long maintained that he will not engage in talks that come with preconditions, a tact Abbas often uses.
Meanwhile, Hamas is reportedly urging Abbas to cancel the sit down. Abbas is currently trying to form a coalition of his own Fatah party with Hamas.
