Kuwait's First Deputy Premier and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said here on Wednesday Arab foreign ministers had urged the US to continue its Middle East peace efforts and to compel Israel to fulfill relevant obligations.

The Arab foreign ministers, during an extraordinary meeting held here today, adopted a resolution calling on Washington to pursue its efforts to ensure continuing peace negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis, the Kuwaiti minister told KUNA following the gathering. The resolution also demanded Israel to honor its peace commitments pursuant to relevant international terms of reference, Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled said while leaving the Egyptian capital.

Held here upon Palestinian request, the meeting focused on the latest developments of the Palestinian-Israeli peace process, he said, adding that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas briefed the ministers on the recent outcomes of peace talks. The ministers stressed the significance of attaining reconciliation and unity among all Palestinian factions at this critical time, he pointed out.

He said the Arab foreign ministers had reiterated Arab support for bids to join international organizations and treaties, urging the international community to be aware of this Palestinian right.

In this regard, they asked the Arab League to contact the US, EU, UN and Asian and African countries to keep them posted on Palestinian efforts to join international bodies, the Kuwaiti minister said.
He noted that there would be more effective Arab moves to throw weight behind Palestinian negotiators and to promote relevant Arab views internationally.
