Arab League chief optimistic over peace talks

07-16-2010 15:09 BJT

DAMASCUS, July 15 (Xinhua) -- Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa said on Wednesday he is quite optimistic over the peace talks between the Palestinian National Authority (PA) and Israel.

During his meeting with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al- Moallem, Moussa confirmed that he would wait for the Arab Follow- up Committee meeting on July 29 which is going to discuss the results of the indirect talks between PNA and Israel.

The Israeli siege imposed on Gaza Strip was also discussed as Moussa confirmed that it must be lifted rather than reduced or even frozen.

PNA and Israel in May kicked off proximity talks brokered by the United States, aiming to resume direct negotiations that came to a halt when Israel launched a military operation on the Gaza Strip in December 2008.

Moussa met earlier this morning Syrian President Bashar al- Assad, as he highlighted Syria's successful role in dealing with the regional affairs.

The Arab League chief visited Damascus last April as he urged the Arab countries and international community to adopt a clear decision regarding Israel's decision to expel the Palestinians of the West Bank out of their homes.
