President Shimon Peres held a Rosh Hashana toast with all the members of the Diplomatic Corps resident in Israel, and said he was optimistic that the Israelis and Palestinians would begin productive negotiations on September 23 at the UN General Assembly. The president wished his guests a happy new year, and said that he hoped the coming year would be one of peace. The Dean of the Diplomatic Corps in Israel, Cameroon Ambassador Mr. Henri Etoundi Essomba, said that "the international community is prepared to assist in the achievement of a comprehensive peace between Israel, the Palestinians and the Arab world.
