Kadhafi to Present His Proposal To Settle Palestinian Problem
Libyan leader Muamar Kadhafi will make a key speech on Saturday 2 March. According to the Libyan news agency, Jana, in his speech, the Libyan leader will outline the “White Book” which contained his proposals at the closed-session of the recent Arab summit in Amman on how to settle the Palestinian problem.
It was decided then that the Arab summit should set up a seven-partite ministerial committee, which also should comprise the Arab League secretary-general, to examine such proposals before reporting back to an ordinary or an emergency Arab summit.
Indeed, after the closed-door session the summit appointed a special commission to review Kadhafi's proposals, comprising the foreign ministers of Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Libya, Sudan, Syria and Tunisia, as well as Arab League Secretary General Amr Mussa and a representative of the Palestinian Authority.
At the time, an Arab diplomatic source said the Libyan leader proposed Arab recognition of Israel and a normalization of ties on the basis of three conditions.
These were the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their former homes in what is now Israel, with compensation; a settlement of the Jerusalem problem and Israel giving up its arsenal of weapons of mass destruction, reported AFP. (Albawaba.com)
