Arab League to refuse to recognize Israel as Jewish state

The Arab League will flatly refuse to recognize Israel as a Jewish state in the final resolution at the end of its two-day summit in Kuwait that began Tuesday.

 

Israel has made the demand for recognition a condition of reaching a peace agreement with the Palestinians.

 

According to the draft of the final resolution, obtained by AFP, the Arab states declare their "absolute and categorical refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state", and "reject all pressure to this effect on the Palestinian leadership". (AFP)
