The Arab League chief Nabi Arabi dismissed on Wednesday as "electioneering" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's vow to rule out a Palestinian state if reelected,

Arabi told AFP that there would be global pressure on Netanyahu for a peace deal.

Netanyahu's statements would "not be the policies of the future Israeli government," Arabi told AFP.

"I believe personally that he made that statement about... no two states to gain the votes of the extremists, particularly those Russian immigrants who went to Israel in the last 10, 15 years," he said.

The Arab League chief told AFP that he expected stalled peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority to resume after the next Israeli government is formed.

"I think there will be enough pressure on any Israeli government that the situation as it is cannot continue; Israel is going to be a pariah," Arabi said.
