Gulf nations to discuss Gaza at economic conference

Dec. 29, 2008 11:06 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 29, 2008 11:06 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an/Agencies - Gulf leaders plan to sign monetary union pacts at a summit on Monday in Oman, where they are also expected to discuss the ongoing Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip.

"The issue will impose itself on the agenda. The events of yesterday will have their deserved place in the discussions," Information Minister Hamad al-Rashdi told Reuters.

Other Gulf rulers gathering for the meeting on Monday are expected to approve a long-planned pact to take countries another step closer to issuing a single currency.

"I don't think the agenda will be derailed," Abdulmalik al-Hinai, undersecretary for economic affairs at Oman's Ministry of National Economy, told Reuters.

More than 310 Palestinians were killed in 76 hours of Israeli attacks in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, Palestinian medical officials say.
