UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged the new Palestinian Authority coalition government to live up to the expectations of the international community, referring to demands that it recognize Israel and work toward peace. Ban spoke after talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who is hosting US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Arab foreign ministers this weekend for discussions on the Mideast peace process. Ban said he welcomed the formation of a new PA coalition that adds moderates and independents to a government formerly made up exclusively of Hamas members.
