Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh discussed Tuesday in Beirut direct peace talks between the Palestinian National Authority and Israel.

"I told Premier Hariri in detail about the resumption of direct negotiations between the Palestinian and the Israeli sides," Judeh told reporters after the meeting with Hariri.

"This is an important phase and the road ahead is still hard and difficult. But there is commitment from all sides, and the involvement of the United States will enhance the chances of success," he added.

"There is a need for continuous consultation and coordination with the brothers in Lebanon," Judeh said.

The U.S.-sponsored direct peace talks over the permanent status issues between Israel and the Palestinians started on Sept. 2 after such negotiations came to halt about 20 months ago.

Lebanon and Syria have refused the U.S. official's invitation to join the peace negotiations with Israel.
