Saudi Arabia to host The new “Arab Summit” on May 19


The General Secretariat of the Arab League announced, next May 19, a specific date for holding the thirty-second Arab summit in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, after consultations between the League and Riyadh regarding the appropriate date, and the Kingdom’s welcome to host the summit at that time.


“The summit will be preceded by several preparatory meetings at the level of senior officials and ministers, paving the way for it to be held over a period of 5 days,” said Ambassador Hossam Zaki, Assistant Secretary-General supervising the affairs of the Council of the League of Arab States.


The Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, had suggested, in press statements, during his visit to Lebanon in the middle of this month, that the main topic of the Arab summit conference in Saudi Arabia would be “economically, and deals with how to help the needy Arab regions.”


A few days ago, Counselor Jamal Rushdi, the official spokesman for the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, confirmed to Asharq Al-Awsat that “consultations are continuing between the Arab League and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to come up with the best possible crystallization of the agenda of issues that occupy the forefront of joint Arab action.”
