Egypt says more work needs to be done to bridge the gap between Israel and the Palestinians before they can move to direct peace talks on Sunday.

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit told reporters the basis to move from indirect to direct talks is still "lacking."Gheit's comment came after separate meetings between Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas during the day. The goal of the meetings was to seek a way forward in the peace talks between Israel and the PA.
