DOHA - The head of the Arab League said on Saturday the Palestinians should seek UN recognition for their statehood in September because negotiations with Israel have proven futile.

"The sound path is going to the United Nations and political struggle," Amr Moussa told Reuters.

He was speaking in Doha, where Arab League member states were to meet later on Saturday to discuss Palestinian options in the wake of major policy speeches by US President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Moussa said a vision presented by Netanyahu in a speech to the US Congress this week had amounted to a series of "no's".
