Source: Arab League considers moving headquarters

CAIRO (Ma’an) – The League of Arab States is considering moving its offices to a capital of another Arab state or elsewhere in Cairo due to the violence there, a source in the league said Saturday.

The official highlighted that the ongoing clashes between Egyptian police and demonstrators in Tahrir Square, Qasr al-Nil and Corniche al-Nil streets pushed the Arab League to hold several sessions to remote hotels or even outside Egypt.

According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia offered to pay $50 million to fund construction of new offices for the Arab League within Cairo.

Arab League officials discussed three potential solutions; to move ministerial meetings to other Arab states, to move Arab League headquarters to another Arab state, or to build a new headquarters in Cairo.
