KUWAIT CITY (Ma’an) -- President Mahmoud Abbas said Tuesday that the Palestinians were completely satisfied with resolutions related to Palestine that were adopted at a Kuwait summit.

"What we want from Hamas is to determine a date for elections in order to complete the Palestinian reconciliation" Abbas told Ma'an at the Arab League summit.

He was expected to address the summit Tuesday evening.

Ahead of the summit, Arab officials told Ma'an that Arab envoys were considering withdrawing the Arab Peace Initiative of 2002.

The initiative -- which calls for two states on the 1967 borders and a "just settlement" of the refugee issue in exchange for full normalization between Israel and the Arab world -- was largely rejected by Israeli officials after it was approved at the 2002 Beirut summit.

Palestine's envoy to the Arab League Muhammad Subih and ambassador to Egypt Barakat al-Farra said that the Palestinian issue would dominate the summit's agenda.

Reviewing the Arab Peace Initiative was to be central on the agenda alongside peace talks with Israel, the status of the occupied Golan Heights, and means for supporting Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.

I watched some of the Arab League summit on satellite, so pleased the Palestinian issues were discussed too. Ma shah Allah, Ramadhan will soon be upon us, this blessed month in which we fast, & pray for Lailat al Qadr (Night of Decree/Power) to come to us. I wonder when Hamas will consider setting a date for the elections in shah Allah. Will they set a date before or after this blessed month, so that national unity can be achieved. May Allah guide us & grant us peace & happiness for the future.
