CAIRO (Reuters) - The Arab League group charged with following up on peace talks with Israel agreed on Friday to attend a U.S.-sponsored conference on the creation of a Palestinian state, and Saudi Arabia indicated it would attend at ministerial level.

“The Arab peace follow-up group has decided to accept the invitation to attend the Annapolis Middle East peace conference at a ministerial level to discuss the peace process,” Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal told a news conference.

Later asked if Saudi Arabia would attend on a ministerial level, Faisal nodded his head.
