Barak Calls Gore and Bush to Update them on Camp David Talks
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak has called the two US presidential candidates, Democrat Al Gore and Republican George Bush, to update them on the Camp David peace talks, an official said Sunday.
"The prime minister called Gore and Bush on Saturday night to fill them in on the Israeli positions discussed at Camp David," Gadi Baltiansky, a spokesman for Barak told AFP.
The Middle East peace summit, which began Tuesday at the US presidential retreat, is intended to produce a comprehensive agreement to end the half-century long Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Palestinians have reported progress in the talks, but Israeli officials said it was too soon to jump to any conclusions.
