Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa canceled Tuesday a plan for an emergency meeting to resolve violence between Palestinians factions, citing meditation efforts to end the bloody rift. Moussa, who had called for the emergency meeting of Arab foreign ministers on Monday, said he shelved the plans after conferring with President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority. Abbas "told me that there are meditations by some Arab states which may lead to a result and progress in (solving) the Palestinian crisis," Moussa told reporters before leaving for a separate mission in Lebanon. "In view of this conversation, it has been concluded that the meeting should be postponed to give the mediation a chance," he said.
