Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will travel to London next week to meet with British leaders.

Olmert's office said in a statement that the premier would spend a day in the British capital, at the invitation of his British counterpart Gordon Brown.

No further details were given.

On trips abroad, Olmert routinely discusses Middle East peacemaking and efforts to keep Iran from developing nuclear bomb technology.

Olmert has resigned as Israel's prime minister but is expected to step aside only after Israeli parliamentary elections on February 10.
