Agreement will be Geneva Accord, signed by Olmert

By Nahum Barnea, Yediot Aharonot, 01.08.08

In a weekend article in Israel's largest daily, Yediot Aharonot, senior columnist Nahum Barnea wrote the peace agreement Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert are likely to reach would be an official "Geneva Accord, adorned with the outgoing prime minister's signature."
In the article, Barnea said Prime Minister Olmert believes that the announcement of his intention to resign following the primaries in Kadima would expedite an agreement on such a joint paper, as the conditions while Olmert remains prime minister are ripe.
