Condoleezza Rice holds peace talks with Abbas, Olmert

world Updated:

The United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice began peace talks on Monday with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas.

The three-way meeting, the first of its kind for several years, is aimed at reviving the stalled West Asia peace process, but has been clouded by battles over the formation of a Palestinian unity government.

American officials said the three were initially meeting alone, except for interpreters, but that the talks could be expanded if the participants wished.
