Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa urged Israel on Tuesday to be more proactive in restarting the stalled Mideast peace talks following the creation of a new Palestinian unity government. "We expect an offer by Israel," Moussa told reporters after talks with Jordanian Foreign Minister Abdul-Ilah al-Khatib. He did not provide details on the kind of initiative the Arab League hopes for from Israel. "In so far as peace is concerned, we fail to see any offer, any serious talk of peace," he said of Olmert's government. "What we see is the same old policy of building settlements, procrastination, of resorting to tricks one after the other in order to waste time." Moussa was in Jordan on the second leg of a regional tour ahead of an upcoming Arab summit in Saudi Arabia on March 28-29 where Mideast leaders hope to build momentum for a resumption of the peace process with Israel based on a 2002 Arab peace initiative. Moussa said the Arab League summit in Riyadh would not "reintroduce" the initiative, but rather "reaffirm" the measure and Arab commitment to it.
