Emergency Arab League summit in Libya

Cairo – Ma’an – A quintuple Arab League summit will be held in Libya next week at the request of President Muammar Qaddafi in light of the "dangerous" situation in the region, Arab League chief Amr Moussa said Tuesday.

Qaddafi is the rotating president of the regional body.

Then an emergency Arab League summit will be held in October to develop a mechanism for joint Arab activities, and to discuss Moussa’s proposal to establish an Arab League neighborhood union.

“The emergency summit in Libya will mark the beginning of a regular Arab League summit every six months and an economic summit every two years," Moussa asserted during a meeting in the Arab League headquarters between member countries’ ministers of information.

He said Arab countries should organize the homefront in order to face the current political, security, and economic challenges related to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

The Arab League has come under fire from Palestinian officials for failing to allocate the $500 million in assistance pledged to the Palestinian Authority in April to protect Jerusalem from Israeli settlers.
