(NEWS) Peres: Bulgaria Could Broker Negotiations Between Israel & PA

"Bulgaria is the ideal place for talks to be staged between Israel and the Palestinian authority, Israeli president Shimon Peres has told his Bulgarian colleague Georgi Purvanov.

'I can't imagine a better place, really. So close, so convenient; this sounds a bit like a self-invitation,' Peres said, cited by Bulgarian media.

The Israeli head of state said that it is of paramount importance for his country to push forward peace talks with the Palestine authority. He also said he had no objections to direct negotiations in the future. It was important that these negotiations, Peres said, should serve the peace interests of both sides."
