U.S. President George W. Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will attend the upcoming Middle East conference to be held in Annapolis, Maryland, the White House said Friday.

When asked if President Bush will attend the conference, White House spokesman Tony Fratto said: "When it occurs, yes, absolutely. Both the president and Secretary Rice."

The Middle East peace conference is tentatively to take place 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.
