Arab League Meeting in Israel Postponed Until July 25

The office of the Israeli prime minister says a visit to Israel by the foreign ministers of Egypt and Jordan will take place July 25, not this week as previously planned.

Ehud Olmert's office gave no reason for the postponement.

The Egyptian and Jordanian ministers are making the trip on behalf of the 22-nation Arab League to discuss reviving an Arab peace initiative with Mr. Olmert.

The initiative includes offering Israel normal relations with all Arab countries in exchange for an Israeli withdrawal from all lands captured during the 1967 war.
