(Communicated by the Foreign Minister’s Bureau)
21 October 2002

Foreign Minister Shimon Peres met this morning in Luxembourg with Prime Minister Jean Claude Juncker and Foreign Minister Lydie Polfer. At the end of the meeting, Mr. Peres stated that any digression from the coordinated position of the United States and Europe regarding the Palestinians will lead to an exacerbation and deepening of the conflict. Every understanding and coordination of efforts, on the other hand, will increase the chances for peace.

The Foreign Minister added that President Bush presented a road map to both sides for comment and discussion. The Quartet is expected to formulate a final version at its meeting in December.
