Washington may delay November’s Middle East peace parley by at least two weeks.

The Israeli-Palestinian peace conference scheduled for mid-November in Annapolis, Md., could be postponed to give Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas more time to reach agreement on a joint statement.

Olmert and Abbas met Wednesday in Jerusalem.
