Libya has decided to freeze its dealings with the Arab League, prior to withdrawing from this body, the official Libyan news agency reported Saturday.
"The ministry of African Unity Affairs notified Amr Moussa, the secretary general of the Arab League, that it is preparing a memo ... for Libya to withdraw from the Arab League," the JANA agency said.
Moussa left Libya on Saturday after a 24-hour visit in which he asked Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi to drop his long-mooted plan to withdraw from the league, JANA reported.
"Libya is an effective country, and its withdrawal from the Arab league will be a great loss," JANA said. "Libya will continue to freeze its activities in the institutions related to the Arab League," the agency added. (Albawaba.com)
