JERUSALEM (AP) - A White House official says that Egypt, Jordan and Morocco have confirmed their attendance at a U.S. conference this month in Bahrain, where the administration will unveil the economic portion of its plan for Mideast peace.

The White House hailed the attendance of the Arab states Tuesday as a sign "that our workshop is gathering momentum."

The level of the countries' representatives was not known, but the U.S. had extended invitations to finance ministers.
