Arab League to Give US One Month to Save Peace Talks

Diplomats at Arab League meeting in Libya say some countries suggesting return to indirect talks to avoid total breakdown of negotiations; Moussa blames Israeli negativity for impasse in peace process.

Arab countries will give the US one month to find a compromise which can save peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians after negotiations stalled over the issue of Israeli building in West Bank settlements, AFP reported a diplomat at the Arab League meeting in Libya as saying on Friday.

The unnamed diplomat said that a resolution to be approved later Friday by the Arab League Follow-up Committee on the peace process calls for the US administration to be given “a one month chance to seek the resumption of negotiations, including a halt to settlement [building].”

Under the resolution, the Arab foreign ministers would reconvene in one month’s time “to examine the policy alternatives if the diplomatic efforts fail.”

Quotes and Sayings

About the Region, Islam and cultural totalitarianism...

    You know, I have repeatedly defended President Bush against the left on Iraq, even though I think he should have waited until the U.N. inspections were over. I don’t believe he went in there for oil. We didn’t go in there for imperialist or financial reasons. We went in there because he bought the Wolfowitz-Cheney analysis that the Iraqis would be better off, we could shake up the authoritarian Arab regimes in the Middle East, and our leverage to make peace between the Palestinians and Israelis would be increased.
