CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert had little to say after their meetings, leading Israeli media to speculate that the two were discussing Iran's nuclear armament program.

Mark Regev, Olmert's spokesman, said they "discussed a range of issues, including the peace process, terrorism and threats to regional security.

On the heels of Cheney's departure for Turkey, Hawaii Senator Daniel Inouye arrived Tuesday on a "fact-finding" mission.

Wednesday will see the arrival of General William Fraser, the Bush administration's appointee to monitor the U.S.-backed road map and move the peace process forward.

US Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff is due Thursday, followed by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Saturday evening.

Though Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said it's too early to remove checkpoints in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), he hopes to streamline the screening process at checkpoints by adding a lane for Palestinian government officials and diplomats and exempting security checks for businessmen from PA areas cleared by the Shin Bet (General Security Agency).
