Arab foreign ministers meeting in Cairo Saturday denounced Israel's campaign in Gaza and demanded a review of all past Arab peace initiatives towards the Jewish state, dpa reported.
Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi said member states should "reconsider all past Arab initiatives on the peace process and review their stance towards the process as a whole," he told an emergency meeting of Arabl League foreign ministers.
Al-Arabi was referring to a 2002 Beirut summit Arab initiative, which offered Israel diplomatic recognition in return for its withdrawal from all occupied territory and a settlement of the Palestinian refugee question.
Officials said a delegation from its ministers will visit Gaza soon.
Lebanon's Foreign Minister also urged Arab nations to adopt strict political and economic measures against Israel."The Arab countries must freeze their contacts, withdraw their ambassadors and suspend agreements with Israel," Adnan Mansour said during the meeting.
