Talks went from day into the night at Camp David- They are still talking at this hour- but so far no deal.

(( The White House called the dying hours of the negotiations difficult-- but no one, especially the President is giving up hope.
(SOT/JOE LOCKHART, WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN)

"...we're not there yet..."
(NARR:)


After nine days of negotiations -- the most intense of which have been in the wee hours of the morning -- neither side has been able to come to an agreement on some of the thorniest issues - especially the status of east Jerusalem -- which both sides want to claim as their Capital.
(SOT/ROBERT SATLOFF, THE WASHINGTON CENTER)

"There can be no end of the conflict agreement without a Palestinian foothold in Jerusalem.:"
(NARR:)


The blame game has already begun -- in a letter to President Clinton, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak wrote: The Palestinians arrived at Camp David lacking a true commitment. Unless there are last-minute changes, the Palestinians will have to envision the tragic consequences of an opportunity they missed. Palestinian officials reportedly sent Mr. Clinton their own letter - claiming that they were bargaining in good faith.
They don't have much time left to argue. The President is due to leave for the G-8 economic summit in Japan within hours -- and while last minute negotiations are expected to continue throughout the night -- the deadline, the White House says, will not be extended again.
That leaves both leaders in the position to either agree to a deal -- walk away from a deal-- or at the very least -- agree to meet again.
(COWAN ON CAM:)

"At this point, that is the option the White House sees as the most likely. If a deal can't be reached -- then preventing a cascade into violence by agreeing to continue talking is the next best option. Lee Cowan, CBS News, Washington."))
