CAIRO – 31 October 2022:  During the awaited Arab League summit preparatory meetings in Algeria, officials agreed on the importance of holding Libya’s elections as soon as possible.

According to Egypt’s Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Ambassador Ahmed Abu Zeid, it was also agreed on the necessity of the exit of all foreign forces and mercenaries, along with supporting the Libyan-Libyan solution in accordance with United Nations resolutions and relevant agreements in a manner that preserves Libya’s unity and sovereignty.

Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry arrived on Friday in Algeria to attend a preparatory meeting for the 31st Summit of the Arab League, set for November 1-2 in Algeria.

During the meeting, Tunisian Foreign Minister Othman Jerandi will hand over the presidency of the summit to his Algerian counterpart Ramtane Lamamra.

The Arab foreign ministers are expected to hold a closed meeting to approve the summit’s agenda.

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
