France will host a donors' conference in December to raise funds to lay the foundations for creating a Palestinian state, the French Foreign Ministry said Wednesday. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Norway will lead the conference in Paris, the ministry said. An exact date has not yet been set, but Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said it would fall two weeks after a Mideast peace conference planned for Annapolis, Maryland, in November or December. "This is a moment of hope for this process, but there is a lot of work to do," said Blair, who is now a Mideast envoy for a coalition of four partners - the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and Russia.
