Middle East peace talks to start in Paris

A French-led conference, Middle East peace summit which aimed at reviving the Israeli-Palestinian peace process is going to begin in Paris today. It will bring together officials from the Middle East Quartet, the UN, Arab League and other countries, but Israel and the Palestinians will not participate. As Israel has rejected the meeting and called for direct negotiations. 

The talks would focus on the 2002 Saudi peace initiative, which offered Arab recognition of Israel in return for the creation of a Palestinian state in territories occupied by Israel since 1967. The summit will be inaugurated by French President Francois Hollande and will be chaired by the French foreign minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault.
