VIENNA - Arab states are signalling that they will refrain from targeting Israel over its assumed nuclear arsenal at a UN atomic agency meeting next week, diplomats said on Thursday, a move that if confirmed would be welcomed by the West.

Two Arab diplomats appeared to substantiate the development, telling Reuters it should be seen as a "confidence-building measure" and a "good gesture from Arab states" to foster wider-ranging efforts to create a Middle East free of nuclear weapons.

As in 2009 and 2010, Arab nations had been expected to submit a resolution at a Sept. 19-23 annual gathering of member states of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) summoning Israel to join a global anti-nuclear treaty.
