Israeli PM doubts deal with Palestinians this year

The chances for a Israel-Palestine peace agreement in 2008 look dim, according to Israeli PM Ehud Olmert.

Despite his gloomy outlook though, Olmert said there was "no better opportunity" to reach a peace deal. "We are determined to make a giant step forward to end this dispute once and for all," he said. "We want to make every possible effort to seize this opportunity."

Right now Olmert is visiting Japan trying to boost Israeli-Japanese relations. He will meet this week with Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice who is in on a tour of Asia.
