Arab League General Secretary to meet Libyan President
Secretary General of the Arab League, Amr Moussa, headed for Libya Sunday for a few hours to meet with President Muammar Qadhafi in order to update him on the latest developments in the region.
Hisham Yousef, spokesman of the Secretary General, said Saturday that the visit "stemmed from keenness to get Libya acquainted with all developments including the secretary general's latest meetings and consultations", KUNA reported.
Yousef said Moussa would hold contacts with top Libyan officials over developments in the Palestinian occupied territories and political ideas in this regard.
Moussa would brief the Libyan officials on results of the consultations of the Arab peace initiative committee held at the league over the past two days. The committee groups foreign ministers from Jordan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Egypt, he added.
Libyan leader Qadhafi said last march that his country would pull out of the Arab League as a result of what he termed the league's failure to solve the Palestinian cause. He had said that his ideas in this regard had not been carried out.
Meanwhile, the Secretary General is expected to take part on Monday in a two-day meeting of the Arab industrial development organization in Saudi Arabia. (Albawaba.com)
