Israel and the Palestinians must come up with a detailed agreement on the most divisive issues between them ahead of a US-sponsored peace conference, the lead Palestinian negotiator said Saturday. But Ahmed Qureia emphasized that negotiating teams that began work last week have not forged a written agreement on any of these issues - final borders, the status of disputed Jerusalem and a solution for Palestinians who lost their homes during the war that followed Israel's 1948 creation. The document that is to be presented at the conference "should be a detailed, clearcut document on the final status issues," Qureia said after meeting with US diplomat David Welch. If the conference fails to create clear foundations for peacemaking, "the outcome will not be good," he added.
