Arab states are lobbying the European Union to support their drive to force Israel to open up its secretive nuclear program to international perusal. The Arab initiative is reflected in documents seen by the AP. One is a letter to Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt from Amre Moussa, secretary general of the 22-nation League of Arab States. He urges Bildt to back an Arab resolution critical of Israel's nuclear secrecy. The resolution is to be submitted for a vote at next month's general assembly of the International Atomic Energy Agency. Sweden currently holds the EU's rotating presidency. Diplomats from EU member countries and from other nations accredited to the IAEA said Thursday that the same letter was sent to the other 26 EU member countries.
