Israel's lead peace negotiator Tzipi Livni Tuesday praised as "important" a concession by the Arab League that Israel and the Palestinians could trade land in a bid to move the peace process forward.

"It's definitely an important step -- I welcome it," Livni said. "The step taken by the Arab League really strengthens the opportunity" to reach an agreement, she added.
