Moussa Backs Mubarak’s Call to Address Kuwait-Iraq Situation at Summit
Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa Thursday backed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's call to address the situation between Kuwait and Iraq during the forthcoming Arab summit, due in Beirut next month.
A league press release said the support of Moussa, currently in the U.S., was answering questions over the situation between Kuwait and Iraq following Mubarak’s remarks over the matter.
Moussa said his efforts to reach a compromise between both states was within his preparations for the summit.
Mubarak said the conciliation between Kuwait and Iraq should be through the Arab summit, which should be well prepared in order for both sides to reach a compromising formula.
He said the Arab summit's chairman, King Abdullah II of Jordan, could play a key role in this respect "either by himself or by assigning a president of an Arab country because it is not an easy job and has different dimensions."
Mubarak said the situation issue was related to UN resolutions, adding that Moussa was doing a personal initiative to narrow the gaps between both sides. (Albawaba.com)
