Arab League Panel Meeting Postponed
Foreign ministers of the Arab League’s follow-up committee postponed their meeting in Amman to June 18 to review financial support for the Palestinians and efforts to freeze Arab political contacts with Israel, reported the official Jordanian news agency, Petra.
The agency did not specify the reasons behind the delay, but said that the meeting, originally set for June 16, was postponed after consultations with the ministers of Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen.
The follow-up committee was set up by the October summit of Arab leaders in Cairo to follow up on support pledged for the Palestinian uprising against Israel, which erupted last September 28.
The ministers will meet in Amman to discuss applying recommendations adopted in Cairo on May 19, which called on Arab states to suspend all political contacts with Israel as long as its aggression and blockade continued – Albawaba.com
