CAIRO – 27 October 2022: Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry will travel to Algiers on Friday to take part in meetings of the Arab League (AL) council ahead of the upcoming Arab summit.

The ministerial meetings come as part of preparations for holding the 31st Arab League summit on November 1-2 in Algeria, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid said Thursday.

Shoukry is scheduled to take part in the Arab foreign ministers’ meetings, to be held on October 29-30. The meetings are expected to review the summit agenda and decisions to be introduced during the summit activities.

It is the first summit for the Arab League after a two-year hiatus, which makes the event very important for helping the Arab countries face the grave challenges facing them due to the current critical international and regional conditions, Abu Zeid said.

Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Abul Gheit arrived on Thursday in Algeria, ahead of the Summit.

The Palestinian cause will top the agenda of the summit, along with other files, including the Arab-European and Arab-African relations and the economy, investment, and trade exchange in the Arab region.

The summit is expected to tackle some decisions, which should reflect the Arab will in settling disputes, restoring peace, and bringing about stability and development for the Arab nations.
