Israel welcomes Arab League support for indirect talks

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel on Wednesday welcomed an endorsement by the Arab League of a U.S.-backed proposal to convene indirect Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

“We welcome this decision,” Mark Regev, a spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, responding to a decision by Arab foreign ministers in Cairo to back the resumption of stalled talks but on an indirect basis.

“Prime Minister Netanyahu has been calling for the resumption of talks for some time and we hope now that the talks can move forward,” Regev added.
