Arabs Put Peace Plan to Obama

AMMAN (JT) - A delegation comprising seven Arab foreign ministers as well as Arab League Secretary General Amr Musa is expected in Amman on Saturday, Prime Minister Nader Dahabi said Thursday.

The delegation is scheduled to discuss with His Majesty King Abdullah his upcoming visit to Washington and his talks with US President Barack Obama, Dahabi said at a meeting with chief editors of daily newspapers.

“We are keen to familiarise the Obama administration with our position. The administration wants to understand the positions of the parties involved before taking any action,” he said.

The deal offers Israel collective Arab recognition in exchange for Israeli withdrawal from territories it occupied in the 1967 war, the establishment of a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital and a just solution to the problem of Palestinian refugees.source
