TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will meet with US Secretary of State John Kerry in London on Tuesday to discuss the faltering Palestinian-Israeli peace process.

They will discuss on the possibility of reviving the stalled Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations that ended late in April without making any progress, a Palestinian official told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

"Abbas and Kerry will also discuss a future national unity government and the internal reconciliation," the official added.

The meetings will be held on the sidelines of Abbas' official visit to London where he will hold talks with British officials.

On Thursday, Abbas discussed the recent developments in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process with US national security adviser Susan Rice in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Israel suspended the US-mediated peace talks five days before their deadline on April 29 in response to a reconciliation agreement between Abbas' Fatah party and Hamas rulers of Gaza.

The nine-month round of talks did not yield any positive results.

Late in April, rival Fatah and Hamas groups announced a reconciliation agreement to end a seven-year political rift.
