    KUWAIT CITY, April 18 (Xinhuanet) -- Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa on Sunday described the ongoing Arab-Israeli situation as "very negative" and called for "a joint political and diplomaticaction in a bid to protect Arab interests".

    Speaking to reporters upon his arrival here, the top Arab diplomat stressed that the Arab-Israeli conflict was an important issue that would be examined at a ministerial level or a leaders' meeting."

    The agenda of the upcoming Arab summit would include the Palestinian and Iraqi issues, he added.

    Moussa emphasized that it is necessary to face "Israel's criminal policies," which he said has "reached its limits", with a serious Arab stance.

    Asked about growing public demands to boycott Israel and the United States, Moussa said such expression of public opinion mirrors the "frustration towards what is happening."

    He revealed that reforms in the Arab world was a "key issue" on the agenda of the Arab leaders' talks and "certain draft projects already existed" and ready for leaders' debate.

    The postponed Arab summit would be held in May, Moussa said, refusing to comment on reasons to delay the Tunis summit last month.

    Moussa arrived here earlier on Sunday for ashort visit, which ispart of his Arab tour with consultations on reconvention of the coming Arab sumit which was postponed by host Tunisia on March 31. Enditem
