Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby said Tuesday that the US's decision to cut UNESCO funding after the cultural agency approved Palestinian membership will deal a blow to reviving Middle East peace talks, according to statement, AFP reported.

Arabi expressed his "extreme astonishment" at the decision by Washington and said "such an American step gives a negative indication of the possibility of success in the efforts to revive stalled peace talks," the statement quoted him as saying.
