Abdullah, Mubarak hold talks; Maher doesn’t want to meet Peres
King Abdullah II of Jordan and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak held talks that were expected to concentrate on the situation in the Palestinian territories. Abdullah left Cairo without making a statement.
Following talks with Mubarak, King Abdullah headed to Casablanca, Morocco, to hold similar talks with Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, who has been making a private visit to that country.
On Sunday night, King Abdullah was to fly to London for a Monday meeting with British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Meanwhile, Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Maher said he was not interested in meeting his Israeli peer Shimon Peres at the upcoming Euro-Mediterranean conference in Spain.
"Frankly, I don't want to meet him but if he asks to see me, I would accept," Maher said in reply to a question from journalists before he left for the meeting in the Spanish city of Valencia.
"In any case, I think he would not be happy with what I would tell him and I think he would not try to meet me because he knows very well what our positions are," he added. (Albawaba.com)
