Germany's foreign minister has called for a fresh effort to restart stalled talks on Turkey joining the European Union.
THE WASHINGTON TIMES The Bush administration yesterday lifted economic sanctions and a diplomatic embargo against the Palestinian Authority after its expulsion of the Islamist group Hamas, which seized the Gaza Strip last week.
"It is still premature to give a specific date," Mr. Malki told the official Voice of Palestine radio last week, saying that consultations with regional groups at the United Nations need to be completed before the resolution on obtaining the rank of a nonmember state can be drafted.
"There were many proposals of a specific date that could have a symbolic implication, including November 15, the anniversary of the national independence declaration, and November 29, the International Day of Solidarity With the Palestinian People," he said.
