U.S. Says It Will Host Fall Middle East Meeting

The United States will host the fall meeting on the Middle East called by American President George W. Bush this week, American State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters.

Replying to a reporter who said he understood the conference would be held outside of the U.S., McCormack replied, "I didn't say that. She's going to be--she'll be hosting it," referring to American Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. He said that no exact place has been determined but that it will not be held in Camp David.
