October 23, 2007 12:42

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert arrived in London Tuesday to discuss Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts with Britain's leader and to push for new UN sanctions against Iran. It will be Olmert's first meeting with Prime Minister Gordon Brown since Brown took office this year, and takes place as international pressure grows on Israel and the Palestinians to agree on a common vision of a final peace deal before a Middle East peace conference. On Monday, Olmert met in Paris with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who told the Israeli prime minister that France wants Israel to be creative and make "some gestures" in negotiations with the Palestinians.
