The 2017 Arab Summit in Jordan - Thoughts and reactions
The real action is about to kick off at the 2017 Arab Summit as Arab leaders and heads of state begin to arrive in Jordan ahead of the reception of Arab leaders and heads of delegations tomorrow. The reception will be followed up by the Arab League Council meeting at Summit level on Wednesday 29th March.
The Arab Summit is an annual meeting of the 22 member countries of the Arab League, or League of Arab States.
This year the summit is hosted in Jordan at the Dead Sea, but how do Jordanians feel about it all?
Yousef Dajani is a mechanical engineering student at the University of Jordan, and according to his twitter page he is generally optimistic about everything, including the Arab Summit.
Some are also expressing their happiness that the summit will be held in Jordan, welcoming the delegates to Jordan and hoping for a successful summit.
There is of course a great deal of concern for security in the area as delegates, politicians and monarchs arrive from all over the Middle East. But it seems that Jordan have that one covered!
The media campaign for the summit has been praised for being incredibly strong this year, which has attracted the attention of Jordanian youth, a successful outcome for Jordan!
