Arab foreign ministers stress Lebanon’s right to defend itself

Arab Foreign Ministers meet at the Arab League building in Cairo, Egypt, Sunday, March 9, 2014. Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby has urged Arab countries to take a “firm stand” against Israel’s demand that the Palestinians recognize it as a Jewish state, calling it a deviation from agreed-upon framework for talks. The Palestinians fear the demand is an attempt to restrict possible return options for Palestinian refugees and the rights of Israel’s large Arab minority. (AP Photo/Ahmed Gomaa)
