A senior official of the Arab League (AL) said Tuesday that the Arabs have several preconditions to take part in a U.S.-proposed international conference on Mideast peace, Egypt's official MENA news agency reported.

The conference should be comprehensive with no party excluded, AL Assistant Secretary General for Palestinian Affairs Mohammed Sobeih said, adding the United Nations should also attend the meeting.

The meeting will focus on the Palestinian issue including means to set up a Palestinian state from an Arab, not an Israeli, viewpoint, Sobeih said, noting the gathering would not discuss inter-Palestinian issues among various groups including Hamas and Fatah.

Sobeih noted that the revived Arab peace initiative and international legitimacy resolutions should be the basic terms of reference adopted by the conference.

The Arab peace initiative, first approved in 2002 and reactivated during an Arab summit in Riyadh this March, offers to extend recognition to Israel by all Arab countries provided that it withdraws from all Arab territories it occupied in the 1967 six- day war, including East Jerusalem.

On July 16, Bush announced that an international conference would be held this fall, which would include Israel, the Palestinians, and some neighboring Arab states, to help resume the stalled Middle East peace talks.
