Arab Summit may be held before end of June: AL chief

MENA , Saturday 29 Feb 2020

Arab League (AL) Secretary General Ahmed Abul Gheit said Saturday the Arab Summit may be held before the end of June.

Abul Gheit told MENA that a meeting with Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune will tackle a decision in this regard later today.

Current global development, especially health conditions, cause concern from meetings and gatherings, the AL chief said.

The decision will be taken in coordination with Algeria as the host country, he added.

We hope these global conditions will end before the proposed date, Abul Gheit said.

Abul Gheit arrived on Saturday in Algiers in a two-day visit to review preparations and arrangements for the upcoming summit that will be hosted by Algeria.

Earlier on the same day, Abul Gheit and Algerian Foreign Minister Sabri Boukadoum discussed preparations and arrangements for the upcoming Arab summit.

The discussions touched upon the arrangements for the coming summit, as well as some key regional issues primarily the Libyan and Syrian crises, and the latest developments of the Palestinian cause.
