Eyeing Arab ties, Israel to observe nuclear pact meeting

NetanyahuIsrael will take part as an observer in a major nuclear non-proliferation conference that opens at the United Nations on Monday, ending a 20-year absence in hope of fostering dialogue with Arab states, a senior Israeli official said.
