Question: What is our reaction to the resolution by the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Arab League that they are ready to deal positively with President Obama's proposal to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict and to take steps needed to support U.S. action aimed at achieving peace?

Answer: The President is committed to comprehensive peace in the Middle East, and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Special Envoy George Mitchell are working hard to create a context conducive to resumption of peace negotiations. The United States welcomes all positive efforts aimed at achieving our shared goal of a two state solution and a lasting peace between Israel and its neighbors.
