Middle East Summit Reaches Agreement on End to Violence
Parties at the Middle East summit have reached an agreement to end 20 days of spiraling Israeli-Palestinian violence, Israeli government minister Amnon Lipkin-Shahak said Tuesday.
Palestinian international cooperation minister Nabil Shaath said that Israel has agreed at least two Palestinian demands at a make-or-break summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, including an international probe into the violence and an end to the blockade on the Palestinian territories.
Meanwhile, US President Bill Clinton has decided to invite Palestinians and Israelis to meet in the United States within two weeks, a member of a delegation at the emergency Middle East summit told AFP -- SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (AFP)
