Arab League chief backs UN path for Palestinians

DOHA - The head of the Arab League said on Saturday the Palestinians should seek UN recognition for their statehood in September because negotiations with Israel have proven futile.

He was speaking in Doha, where Arab League member states were to meet later on Saturday to discuss Palestinian options in the wake of major policy speeches by US President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
Moussa said a vision presented by Netanyahu in a speech to the US Congress this week had amounted to a series of "no's".
