15th November 2010, Comments 0 comments

A Mediterranean Union summit planned for November 21 in Barcelona has been postponed again because the Middle East peace talks are "deadlocked", the Spanish government said Monday.

"Given the evidence that the deadlocked peace process in the Middle East would make a satisfactory participation in the summit schedueld for November 21 impossible, the co-presidency and Spain have decided to postpone it," it said in a statement.

Egypt and France co-chair the 43-nation Mediterranean Union, while Spain hosts the group's headquarters in Barcelona.
