Arabs discuss UN resolution to end Israel's occupation

UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Arab ambassadors are meeting to discuss Palestinian amendments to a U.N. resolution that would call for an end to Israel's occupation within three years.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said the revised resolution would be submitted Monday and voted on Tuesday.

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that if the Security Council doesn't reject the resolution "we will."

"Israel will oppose conditions that endanger our future," he said in a statement.

Jordan's U.N. Ambassador Dina Kawar, the Arab representative on the Security Council, told reporters as she headed into Monday's meeting that Jordan would have liked more consultations among the 15 council members but respects "very much" that the Palestinian situation is difficult.

"We will be doing what the Palestinians want and in conformity with the Arab League," she said.
