Israel, Palestinians seek quick 'understandings'


Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will try to draw up a preliminary document of understandings within two weeks, Israeli media reported on Sunday.


If they succeed, they will take their limited deal to Washington so President George W. Bush, whose administration has brokered peace talks in the past year, can announce an agreement in principle has been reached, Israel Radio said. (Reuters)
