PARIS- Foreign Ministers from several Western and Middle Eastern countries began to arrive in Paris for a conference Sunday aimed at determining whether Israelis and Palestinians could be brought back to negotiations and revive moribund peace talks.

Some 70 countries, including key European and Arab states as well as the permanent members of the UN Security Council, are due in Paris for a meeting that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected as "futile" and "rigged." Neither the Israelis nor the Palestinians will be represented.
