BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – A delegation representing the Arab League will soon head
to the United States to move forward the Middle East peace process, a
Palestinian envoy said Tuesday.

Muhammad Sbeih, secretary-general for Palestinian affairs in the Arab
League, told Jordan’s al-Ghad newspaper that the delegation would submit a
proposal to Washington with new ideas for a solution for the Arab-Israeli
conflict.

“The proposal includes specific Arab ideas about Israel’s withdrawal from
the occupied Palestinian territory, the establishment of a Palestinian
state, guaranteed security for both sides,” he said.

Negotiations, according to the new proposal, should be limited to six
months.

Sbeih highlighted that the proposal, already submitted to Arab governments,
addresses the role of the international Quartet and the possibility to make
certain changes to that role and give the Quartet specific tasks with a
clear deadline.

Sbeih added that the absence of terms of reference and a clear timeline
serve Israeli interests as that helps Israel gain more time and impose more
facts on the ground as settlement expansion continues.
