Arab leaders endorse two-state solution, say ready for reconciliation with Israel

Dead Sea, Jordan (Reuters) - Arab leaders said on Wednesday at the end of a one-day summit in Amman that they would be ready to have a historic reconciliation with Israel in return for its withdrawal from land it occupied in the 1967 war.

A communique read by the secretary general of the Arab League said Arab states would back Palestinian-Israeli peace talks to end the decades-old conflict if it guaranteed the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
