Egyptian: Mideast conference to be in New York
A Mideast peace conference called for by President Bush will be held in September on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly meeting in New York, Egypt's foreign minister said Thursday.

Ahead of the conference, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will discuss its agenda with Arab foreign ministers on July 31 in the Egyptian Red Sea resort town of Sharm el-Sheik, said Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit

"Egypt's vision is that the meeting should handle a wide number of issues," including launching the peace process in active negotiations between the Israeli and Palestinian parties, Aboul Gheit said at a news conference.

However, Suleiman Awad, a spokesman for the Egyptian president, told The Associated Press that it is not yet clear when or where the Mideast conference will be held.
