"I don't think we're in a position where we can come back and revisit the problem in early 2007," he said.
Abdullah said that "something dramatic" was needed to bring peace back into the region. "We could possibly imagine going into 2007 and having three civil wars on our hands. And therefore, it is time that we really take a strong step forward as part of the international community and make sure we avert the Middle East from a tremendous crisis that I fear, and I see could possibly happen in 2007."
