Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak held talks late on Wednesday with Saudi King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz in the Egyptian resort city to address ways to promote the Middle East peace, Xinhua reported.
Mubarak and Abdullah reviewed the results of the
Israeli- Palestinian proximity talks and the possibility of moving to direct talks.
The two leaders also touched on the developments of the situation in Lebanon, Iraq, Somalia and Sudan as well as the standoff between Iran and the West over Tehran's nuclear program.
Egypt is the Saudi monarch's first stop in a four-nation Arab tour, which will also bring him to Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.
The visit preceded a meeting of the Arab Peace Initiative Committee that will take place on Thursday at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo, which is to decide the Arab position on the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
