President Shimon Peres told a delegation of visiting US Democratic Congresspeople that he is still convinced peace with the Palestinians is possible.

Speaking at the President's Residence, Peres told the congresspeople that he is in contact with Palestinian officials and that both Israelis and Palestinians understand that returning to the negotiating table is something they must do prior to the start of the United Nations General Assembly session in September, Israel Radio reported.

The president added that he believes the Palestinian leadership is itself unsure whether the United Nations statehood bid is the right move.
