U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met Thursday with Middle-East Quartet Representative Tony Blair, before her visit to Qatar and Saudi Arabia from Saturday to Tuesday.

In a press release, Clinton said she discussed developments in the Middle East with Blair. Blair will intensify his partnership with U.S. envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell to mobilize the efforts of the international community in support of relaunching the Middle East peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian side.

In her visit to Qatar and Saudi Arabia, Clinton is to meet with leaders from both countries, as well as speak at the U.S.-Islamic World Forum.

The United States has renewed its push to restart the stalled Middle East peace talks. U.S. envoy Mitchell has made shuttle visits to the region, holding talks with both Palestinians and Israelis.
