Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa met on Sunday with U.S. Middle East peace envoy George Mitchell.

Moussa and Mitchell discussed about the latest developments in the Middle East and efforts exerted to start direct peace negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis.

Moussa stressed the need to achieve tangible progress in the security and border issues at indirect negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis before moving to direct talks, Egypt's official MENA news agency reported.

The Arabs would refer the whole Palestinian issue to the United Nations Security Council if no progress will be achieved during the indirect talks, said the AL chief.

The U.S. is eager to let the two sides move to face-to-face negotiations even before the end of the proximity talks.
