JNS.org – French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault is seeking support from Arab states in an effort to relaunch peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

“[The Israeli-Palestinian conflict] is a powder keg waiting to explode,” said a senior French diplomat ahead of Ayrault’s two-day visit to Egypt, where he will meet with Arab ministers, Reuters reported Wednesday. “Everybody sees it, and yet nobody is doing anything. We know this isn’t going to be resolved in three months, but it’s imperative to give a new political horizon to the process.”

France reportedly plans to ask Arab countries to commit to a conference, taking place before May, that would set forth incentives aiming to jumpstart Israeli-Palestinian negotiations by August.
