Egypt's Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said Tuesday the Arab world may normalize ties with Israel, but only if Israel freezes construction in West Bank settlements and renews negotiations with the Palestinians. "Is normalization possible as long as the building in settlements continues? The answer is no, of course," Gheit was quoted by AFP as saying in a joint press conference with his Spanish counterpart, Miguel Angel Moratinos in Cairo last week.
