Visiting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordanian Prime Minister Marouf Bakhit on Thursday in Amman discussed the ongoing preparations for holding the U.S.- proposed international peace conference.

Bakhit told reporters after the meeting that it was important to push the political process forward in one hand, and to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinians through the removal of barriers and release the largest possible number of Palestinian prisoners and detainees on the other.

On July 16, U.S. President George W. Bush proposed to hold an international conference that will group Israel, the Palestinians and some neighboring Arab states to help resume the stalled Middle East peace talks.

Abbas said he had briefed Bakhit on efforts exerted by all parties to re-launch the peace process between the Palestinians and Israel.

Abbas highlighted his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert last week during which they discussed issues of security, prisoners and the Palestinians in the homeland without identities and the issue of deportees.

"We agree that the international conference should specify the goals from the outset and those who will attend the conference, affirming importance that all the concerned parties should attend the conference," said Abbas.

The Arab initiative, the road map, and Bush's vision will be the framework of any conference to be held to discuss the Arab- Israeli Peace, he added.
