Moussa, Armitage hold different views on occupation and resistance
Regional-USA, Politics, 11/12/2003
The secretary general of the Arab League Amr Moussa had different views with the US Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage who is currently visiting Cairo to discuss the two issues of occupation and resistance.
In a press conference he jointly held with Armitage yesterday in Cairo, Moussa clung to his position to that the Arab- Israeli conflict in the occupied lands is the base of hostility against the US in the Arab and Islamic world alike.
Moussa criticized the American role, saying that the Arab League seeks to have the American role to be honest and neutral rather than "totally biased to Israel." But Armitage answered that solving the Arab- Israeli conflict will not stop terrorism, stressing that the US support for Israel is a basic principle for Washington.
He added "I can agree that al-Qaida organization will use the conflict in the occupied territories to serve their interests, but this conflict is not the fundamental reason for al-Qaida's terrorism." He said that "Osama Bin laden and al-Qaida organization only recently gave mention to the name of Palestine."
