Jordan's king told visiting Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday that an upcoming summit in Egypt must set the stage for renewed Palestinian-Israeli peace talks. Abbas was visiting King Abdullah II ahead of Monday's meeting in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik, which will be attended by both leaders, as well as Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. "The summit must be seized as an opportunity to formulate a clear timeline for a return to negotiations," King Abdullah II told Abbas in a closed-door meeting in Jordan's capital Amman, according to a royal palace statement.
