Peres tells Solana both Israel and Palestinians ready to resume talks

President Shimon Peres on Monday said that both Israel and the Palestinians were ready to resume peace negotiations. "Both sides want peace. We all agree on a solution of two states for two peoples, the only problem is how we will do this and in how many stages," Army Radio quoted Peres as saying in a meeting with EU Foreign Policy chief Javier Solana. Solana reportedly told Peres that the UN Security Council should study the International Atomic Energy Agency's report on Iran's nuclear program.
