Arab League names conditions for direct peace negotiations
The Arab League outlined Thursday three conditions for direct Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, saying any future round of talks would be the "final phase" of negotiations, dpa reported
In a letter addressed to the United States administration, the league said it needed a clear timeframe, specific reference terms and a monitoring mechanism in order to support such direct talks.
"I assure you I am not of the intention to enter into negotiations, without a time frame, without clear references and without monitoring," Arab League chief Arm Moussa said at a press conference in Cairo.
Sitting besides him was the Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor al Thani, who said he was "full of doubts" about Israel's seriousness regarding final status negotiations.
