Arab League Said to OK July Summit
A much-delayed Arab summit is scheduled to take place in Morocco on July 3, the United Arab Emirates newspaper Al Ittihad said Wednesday.
It quoted senior diplomatic sources in Rabat as saying that Arab foreign ministers have also agreed to meet on June 23 to prepare an agenda for the two-day July summit.
Arab League Secretary General Chedli Klibi toured eight Arab states last week to rally support for the proposed gathering, originally called for by Libya and Morocco to discuss the U.S. air raid on Libya in April.
But differences over the agenda have delayed the summit. Libya wanted only the air raid discussed, while gulf states said the Iraq-Iran War and other Middle East issues should be included.
