Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas reiterated his call to Israel to commit to the two-state solution, to stop building in settlements and to remove West Bank checkpoints. After meeting his Egyptian counterpart Hosni Mubarak in Cairo on Thursday night, Abbas said that as soon as Israel agreed to those conditions he would resume negotiations with Jerusalem. Abbas also called on the Quartet to put a mechanism in place in order to implement the Road Map peace plan. The PA president dismissed remarks made recently by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman that the new Israeli government was not bound by the Annapolis process. Meanwhile, a number of Arab foreign ministers are set to meet in Amman on Saturday in order to formulate an Arab stance regarding continuing the peace process with the Netanyahu government ahead of King Abdullah of Jordan's upcoming trip to the US. The Amman meeting will be attended by the foreign ministers of Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. The PA will also send a representative.
