The summit will be held in May at the Red Sea resort Sharm el-Sheik in Egypt and attended by U.S. President George W. Bush, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and leaders of Egypt and Jordan, said the Member of the Knesset, the Israeli parliament.

Palestinian officials confirm that Washington is planning the summit, which Beilin called a follow-up to the U.S.-hosted international peace conference in Annapolis, Maryland last November, Israeli daily The Jerusalem Post reported.
