Abdullah to Nobel laureates: Give ideas for peace

Jordan's King Abdullah II urged Nobel Prize winners on Wednesday to contribute ideas so that Palestinians and Israelis can negotiate peace and allow a Palestinian state to emerge. "Peace among nations depends on the trust that is built when people recognize common values and goals," Abdullah told some 50 Nobel Laureates in this city carved from red stone by Nabataean Arab nomads some 2,000 years ago. The two-day conference, attended by Nobel prize winners such as Elie Wiesel and the Dalai Lama, was hosting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Thursday.
