Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and United States President George W. Bush will host an Israeli-Palestinian summit next month, which will also include Jordanian King 'Abdallah II.
The summit, according to Israeli media outlets, is expected to take place in mid-May, during Bush's visit to Israel. Bush is arriving at Israel on May 14 for its 60th anniversary celebrations and is scheduled to stay in the country until May 16.
By calling for the summit, the American administration is attempting to push forward the American-brokered peace talks, which began 100 days ago in Annapolis, Maryland.
