Arab foreign ministers begin 2-day meeting

The foreign ministers of 21 Arab states and the Palestinian Authority were scheduled to begin a two-day meeting Saturday that is supposed to reach consensus positions on Iraq, Iran, the situation between Israel and the PA following Hamas's victory in the January elections, as well as the conflict in Sudan's Darfur region and the tension between Syria and Lebanon. According to a draft documents obtained by The Associated Press, the summit will come out firmly against any retreat on its policy toward Israel, which would leave Hamas isolated.
