The World

The United States is disappointed that Moroccan King Hassan II withdrew his invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres for a meeting to discuss the Middle East peace process, U.S. Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering said in Tel Aviv. “It would have been a real contribution to the process to have such a meeting,” Pickering said. Hassan, chairman of the 21-member Arab League, offered Monday to talk with Peres, but the next day he said negotiations should be conducted indirectly through the United Nations.
