Peres Says Mideast Talks in D.C., State Dept. Denies

The State Department has denied a statement by President Shimon Peres that the planned international conference on the Middle East this fall will be in Washington D.C.

"I have not heard any information about the date or the location for that," said State Department spokesman Gonzalo Gallegos. It was not clear whether President Peres meant the city of Washington or the area, but Bush administration officials previously have ruled out the nearby Camp David as avenue for the talks.
