The Sharm e-Sheikh peace talks were very serious and touched on all the issues that were meant to be discussed between the Israeli and Palestinian parties said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Tuesday, Israel Radio reported.

A breakthrough cannot be expected after two meetings, explained Aboul Gheit. The recognition of Israel as a Jewish state was brought up during the talks and the foreign minister expressed hope that the matter will not bring further obstacles which will hamper negotiations.  Aboul Gheit added that the subject of a Palestinian state will be based on setting boundaries and reaching an agreement in which each side will be able to do as it wishes within its set borders.
