Key international players stressed the urgent need for Mideast peace and backed the stalled road map peace plan at a meeting Wednesday. Leaders of the so-called Quartet - the United Nations, the United States, the European Union and Russia - stressed the need for "a credible political process" to make progress toward the goal of two democratic states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security. Secretary-General Kofi Annan hosted the meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, a day before the Security Council holds a meeting of foreign ministers at the urging of the Arab League to revive efforts to end the Arab-Israel conflict - not only with the Palestinians but with the Syrians and Lebanese as well. In a statement issued at the end of the meeting, the Quartet "stressed the urgent need to make progress towards a just, lasting and comprehensive peace in the Middle East."
