Resolving Palestinian conflict key to Middle East stability 

A settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is crucial for Middle East security was the message from the region’s leaders at a World Economic Forum on the Middle East plenary session. “This is very important for Jordan and the whole region,” said Nader Al Dahabi, Jordan’s premier. “The Palestinian issue is core,” agreed Mohamed ElBaradei, head of the IAEA. He added that the region needed to improve the quality of life through home-grown reforms for there to be lasting stability: “Poverty to me is the most powerful weapon of mass destruction.”
