US to Unveil Middle East Plan Next Month


In his meeting Tuesday with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, U.S. President Barack Obama promised he would be presenting a rough draft of his Middle East peace plan in September. Following Mubarak’s White House meeting, his spokesman Suleiman Awad said the two presidents agreed that a detailed plan with a clear vision of a final agreement is necessary.

At the press conference following their meeting, Obama said he saw "movement in the right direction" from Israel and praised Mubarak as a "leader," "counselor" and “friend." In return, Mubarak said the U.S. president had "removed all doubts" the Muslim world had previously entertained about the United States.
