Arab League chief: no progress in indirect talks

CAIRO — The head of the Arab League, Amr Moussa, said Thursday that indirect talks between Israel and the Palestinians are failing and sees no chance for a shift to direct negotiations.
Amr Moussa said senior Arab diplomats will meet July 29 to evaluate the results of the indirect talks, which started in May.
Moussa said the sides have made no tangible progress so far and "we are now facing the failure of these negotiations."
Moussa spoke Thursday after meeting with Mideast envoy Tony Blair.
