The United States said Tuesday that the upcoming Middle East peace conference will focus on bringing peace between Israelis and the Palestinians.

"The agenda for the meeting later this year in Annapolis is going to be focused on bringing peace between Israelis and Palestinians and forging the two-state solution that President Bush outlined," State Department deputy spokesman Tom Casey said, adding that this is the primary focus of the meeting.

"And certainly we want to have an opportunity to give impetus and momentum to the process that the Israelis and Palestinians themselves have been working on by bringing together other members of the international community to help not only show rhetorical support, but also to find ways that we can all contribute to this effort and help advance this cause," Casey said.

The Middle East peace conference is tentatively to take place in Annapolis, Maryland from Nov. 25-27, according to U.S. media. However, the White House has declined to confirm the date for the conference.

However, the peace conference looks to be thin on content, mostly serving as a stage to begin formal negotiations on a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, the New York Times said in a report on Monday.

The Middle East peace process has been stalled due to the violence between the two sides as well as the internal conflicts of Palestinian factions.
