An international peace conference, which would include Israel and "West-ally" Arab nations, is likely to convene in November, sources close to U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said.

However, the exact date, place, participants of the conference still remain undecided, the sources was quoted by local newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth as saying.

Rice's Wednesday meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert resulted in the decision that the U.S. would continue to exert its influence on Arab countries, convincing more of them to take part in the conference, the report said.

Morocco, Tunisia, Qatar and Bahrain were named as potential participants, but no actual date and location have been set, nor has Rice announced the conference's agenda, it added. During his meeting with Rice, Olmert said that he welcomed Saudi Arabia's support for the peace conference.
