The Middle East Quartet comprising Russia, the U.S.,
The Middle East Quartet comprising Russia, the U.S., the EU and the UN, is considering holding a ministerial-level meeting in Egypt's Sharm el Sheikh, a Russian Foreign Ministry source said Wednesday.

The source said that planning was underway for a quartet ministerial-level meeting to be held "on the sidelines of an international conference on the restoration of the Gaza Strip."

French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi are set to attend the March 1 Gaza conference. Some 60 other delegates, including officials, bankers and industrialists are also expected.

More than 1,300 Palestinians were killed during Israel's recent three-week military operation in Gaza. The attack was launched by Tel Aviv to try and prevent militants firing rockets at southern Israeli towns from the Hamas-controlled enclave.
