By JPOST.COM STAFF
Arab countries will give the US one month to find a compromise which can save peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians after negotiations stalled over the issue of Israeli building in West Bank settlements, AFP reported a diplomat at the Arab League meeting in Libya as saying on Friday.The unnamed diplomat said that a resolution to be approved later Friday by the Arab League Follow-up Committee on the peace process calls for the US administration to be given "a one month chance to seek the resumption of negotiations, including a halt to settlement [building]."Under the resolution, the Arab foreign ministers would reconvene in one month's time "to examine the policy alternatives if the diplomatic efforts fail."
