Bush confident on Mideast peace deal
Adjust font size:

U.S. President George W. Bush (L) meets with Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak (L) after arriving in Sharm el -Sheikh, May 17, 2008.

An editorial in the Egypt's state-owned Al-Gomhuria daily said that Bush had forgotten his role as the just mediator of the Arab-Israeli conflict and exposed his real self.

Bush, who arrived in Sharm El Sheikh earlier in the day, was scheduled to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Saturday for talks to deal with issues related to the stalled Middle East peace process.

So far, there has been virtually no visible progress in the Palestinian-Israeli peace process since the two sides relaunched it after the U.S.-hosted Mideast peace conference in late November, when a commitment was made to reach a peace deal before Bush leaves office in January.

Bush's five-day Mideast tour, the second one in 2008, has already taken Bush to Israel and Saudi Arabia.
