Baghdad's official newspaper said Monday that peace talks in Moscow have raised ``high hopes' for an end to the gulf war, but the Iraqi military said it was ready for a bloody ground conflict.

Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz was en route home from Moscow carrying a Soviet peace proposal that could forestall the widely expected allied ground offensive.``There are high hopes and expectations in Moscow that the Iraqi-Soviet talks will be a decisive turning point between war and peace,' said Al-Thawra, newspaper of the ruling Arab Baath Socialist Party.
