Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, in Morocco for talks on the Middle East, welcomed Arab nations' "positive position" toward next week's US-sponsored peace conference, the Moroccan state news agency reported. Abbas held talks Saturday with Moroccan King Mohammed VI about the much-awaited conference in Washington and Annapolis, Maryland, starting Monday. Abbas flew to the ancient city of Fez from Cairo, where Arab League members agreed Friday after intense discussions that the meeting should be attended by a committee set up earlier this year to deal with the peace process.
