Arab League (AL) Secretary General Amr Moussa on Wednesday expressed his dissatisfaction with international Quartet and UN Security Council's recently adopted documents on the Middle East peace process.
The recently adopted Quartet statement and UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution "do not meet the Arabs' aspirations," Moussa said in a statement.
The UNSC resolution missed some important points, such as "stopping Israeli settlement activities and setting a timeframe for the (peace) negotiations," Egypt's state MENA news agency quoted Moussa's statement as saying.
In addition, the resolution should have included the item about the removal of Jewish settlements "not only in the Palestinian territories but also in Syria and Lebanon," added the statement.
However, Moussa recognized that there are some positive points with regard to the statement and the resolution, adding the issue of the Mideast peace process is once again referred to the UN Security Council.
On Tuesday, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution to encourage the implementation of a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which means a Palestinian state can enjoy peace alongside a secure Israel.
The new resolution, adopted at a ministerial meeting of the Security Council, is the first council resolution on the Israel-Palestinian conflict in five years.
The resolution was adopted a day after the Quartet, which groups the UN, the European Union, Russia and the United States, issued a statement at its New York meeting to push forward the Mideast peace process.
