Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Abul Gheit called Sunday on revitalizing Arab-European talks on Palestine.

During a meeting with EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell on the sidelines of the Rome Med-Mediterranean Dialogue conference hosted by Italy, Abul Gheit asserted the importance of maintaining EU initial stances on the implementation of the two-state solution and establishing an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders.

He called on Europe to play a more influential role to revive the Palestinian-Israeli talks.

A statement from the Arab League general secretariat said the meeting covered a set of bilateral and regional issues of common concern especially the preparations for the sixth round of the Arab-European Ministerial Meeting, due to be held in Cairo in early 2022.

It said the two sides tackled means of rendering successful the Arab-European round of talks in order to push Arab-European relations forward, the source added.

Abul Gheit reiterated the importance of activating Arab-European consultations to bolster partnership and enhance coordination between the two sides.
