Peres: Peace Agreement with PA Possible Before Summit

President Shimon Peres declared Sunday his belief that it is possible to reach a final status agreement with the Palestinian Authority before an international Middle East summit is held in November.

“I think that we have a good opportunity at this moment in time because the entire world supports President (Mahmoud) Abbas,” said Peres in an interview Saturday with the Japanese newspaper “Nikei Business”. Peres added that he believes economic assistance to the PA combined with political negotiations will ease the process.
