Mubarak, Turkish counter

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said Tuesday that he discussed efforts to revive the stalled Middle East peace talks with Turkey's Abdullah Gul. Mubarak said they also discussed efforts to broker a deal to reconcile rival Palestinian groups during Tuesday's talks in Ankara. Neither leader elaborated, but Gul said that the Palestinian cause it a priority for both Turkey and Egypt. Mubarak said Turkey and Egypt agree that Israeli "position and actions" in the West Bank and its blockade of Gaza "posed a danger" to peace.
