Arabs to push for UN Security Council resolution on Palestinian state

CAIRO- Arab League foreign ministers agreed on Saturday to formally present a draft resolution to the United Nations Security Council that will set a time frame for the creation of a Palestinian state.
The ministers set up a committee comprised of Kuwait, Mauritania, Jordan and Arab League chief Nabil al-Araby to begin seeking international backing for the resolution, they said in their closing statement.
The statement did not specify when the resolution would be presented but diplomatic sources have said Jordan, an Arab member in the Security Council, could present the draft within days.
