Tzipi Livni (R) shakes hands with French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner prior to their meeting in Jerusalem. Kouchner warned that Israel would strike archfoe Iran before it was able to develop nuclear weapons, in comments published today.

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner says she doesn’t expect an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement by the end of the year.

U.S. President George W. Bush hosted high-profile peace talks last November in Annapolis, Maryland, and has expressed hope for an agreement by the end of the year. But progress has been limited.

Kouchner urged the international community today to keep pressure on both sides after meeting with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
