Cairo: Arab officials agreed today to the holding of direct Middle East peace negotiations and left it up to Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas to decide when to start talks with Israel, the Qatari prime minister and foreign minister said.
Hamad bin Jassem bin Jabr al-Thani, who chaired a
meeting of foreign ministers and representatives, spoke in
response to a question about whether they had given Abbas a
green light to start talks.
"I`ll be clear. There is an agreement but with the
understanding of what will be discussed and how the direct
negotiations will be conducted. And we will leave the
assessment of the position to the Palestinian president as to
when the conditions allow the beginning of such negotiations,"
he said.
