Arab League head says peace talks should be given a chance

Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa on Friday said that peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians should be given a chance, AFP reported. Moussa made the comments at an economic summit in Italy
"Let us see what kind of compromise (Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu is offering, we have never heard from the Israeli side any initiative or any concrete position," Moussa said.
Mousa added that he did not want to be pessimistic on the first day of negotiations, yet he seemed skeptical about Israel's willingness to accept a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital.
