Arab League chief urges regional dialogue with Iran amid tension
Hurriet Daily News

Arabs and Iranians should sit together to try to resolve regional disputes, including the Persian nations nuclear ambitions, the head of the Arab League said Tuesday. Amr Moussa’s statement is the first by a top Arab official calling for a regional dialogue with Iran at a time of increasing tension between Arab countries and Tehran. Many, mostly Sunni Arab nations are worried about the majority Shiite Iran’s gaining power in the region, particularly its influence over Iraq, Lebanon’s militant Shiite Hezbollah group and the militant Palestinian Hamas. "Time has come for an Arab-Iranian dialogue which should include all issues," Moussa told reporters. "We have differences and problems but these can be solved because Iran is an important country."
