Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will meet US Secretary of State John Kerry this week in Jordan's capital Amman, a well-informed Palestinian official said 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, will discuss with Abbas a framework peace plan supposed to be proposed before the peace negotiations end in April.

Earlier Monday, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erikat warned that the failure of the current Palestinian-Israeli peace talks would lead to the collapse of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA).

It is the first time a Palestinian official has warned of a possible collapse of the PNA if the US-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.
