Visiting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met Thursday in Amman with Jordanian Prime Minister Marouf Bakhit on the ongoing preparations for holding a proposed international conference on Middle East peace.

Bakhit told a press conference after the meeting that the two sides discussed the future peace conference and a need of good preparations for it.

While emphasizing the importance of pushing the political process forward, the Jordanian premier called for alleviating the suffering of the Palestinian people through removal of Israeli barriers and release of the largest possible number of Palestinian prisoners and detainees.

On his part, Abbas revealed that "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."

He said that he had briefed Bakhit on efforts exerted by all parties to re-launch the peace process between Palestinians and Israelis, highlighting the importance of his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert last week.

During the summit meeting, the two sides discussed issues of security, prisoners and the Palestinians in the homeland without identities and the issue of deportees, said Abbas.

The Arab peace initiative, the road map and U.S. President George W. Bush's vision about the proposed international conference should be the framework of any conference to be held to discuss the Arab-Israeli peace, he stressed.
