Visiting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday said that the U.S.-proposed international peace conference "lacks clarity" and it could fail if no clarifications for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was devised.
After talks with Jordan's King Abdullah II in Amman, Abbas told Jordan Television that the conference would not be useful if the participants go to it "without clarifications for a solution, and without a declaration of principles within a framework."
"I do not know an official date and the agenda for the conference, and was unsure who would attend it," he added.
Earlier in the day, Abbas met Abdullah and briefed him on the situations in the Palestinian territories as well as the results of his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Tuesday.
Abdullah called on the Israelis and the Palestinians to continue discussion on key and essential issues related to the peace process, such as borders, future of Jerusalem and refugees, to guarantee the success of the international peace meeting.
On July 16, U.S. President George W. Bush proposed to hold an international conference later this year to group Israel, the Palestinians and some neighboring Arab states to help resume the stalled Middle East peace talks.
The meeting was reported to be held in the United States in November.
