Arab League Chief: Israeli practices likely to destroy peace plan
Israeli actions will destroy a new plan for peace with the Palestinians, Arab League chief Amr Moussa warned, as he left for Morocco and Mauritania.
"The roadmap could become a plan leading to a Palestinian state in 2005, but Israeli policies and practices aim to abort it," Moussa told reporters on Tuesday.
"The building of the fence, seizure of land, division of villages and refusal to reverse the settlements policy, as well as bombardments and daily closures of Palestinian towns and villages are among such practices," the Arab League head added.
"All these practices are likely to destroy the peace plan, even though it offers a window that could lead to peace and the creation of a Palestinian state," Moussa said, according to SPA news agency.
Moreover, Moussa said his visit to Morocco and Mauritania would focus on "the situation in the Arab world, the restructuring of the 22-member Arab League, the Israeli occupation of Palestine and developments on
the Iraqi scene." (Albawaba.com)
