Israeli and Palestinian Authority presidents met here Tuesday, before a Middle East conference this month aimed at relaunching peace negotiations between the two sides which broke down amid violence seven years ago. Israeli President Shimon Peres said Monday he believed Israel could now make peace with Palestinians and said his country was determined to make the US-sponsored peace negotiations in Annapolis, Maryland, at the end of this month a success. "I believe we can make peace now with Palestinians and all countries that are on the side of peace," Peres said, while adding that it might not happen quickly. "It takes time to make peace." Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas gathered at Turkey's presidential palace for talks on establishing an industrial park in the West Bank, aimed at generating jobs for thousands of Palestinians.
