The upcoming Arab League Summit was due to take place in March in Libya.

In view of the unrest in the region, Ambassador Qais Al-Azzawi, the new representative of Libya in the Arab League, stated in an interview with Ahram Online that the summit will neither be postponed nor cancelled unless there is a meeting amongst all of the Arab heads of state, as he believes that the revolutions sweeping the Arab world from east to west actually pose a great need for an Arab summit.

Azzawi stressed that Libya has not filed any requests to the Arab League to postpone the summit. Abdel-Monem al-Houni, the former representative of Libya in the League, resigned from his post on Sunday to join the popular revolution in Libya.
