Arab States Against Direct PA-Israel Talks

Sources in Damascus revealed to the newspaper al-Watan that Syria, Lebanon, Algeria, Qatar, and Sudan are reportedly opposed to direct talks between Israel and the American-backed Palestinian Authority.

The Arab League is scheduled to hold a discussion on Thursday after which it is expected to vote on the matter. Most of the Arab states are expected to support the move to abstain "due to massive American pressure placed on them."
