need for a comprehensive strategy to deal with a protracted global crisis

The Arab countries urgently need a global strategy to deal with the persistent crisis that the world is going through, said Tuesday in Algiers, the Secretary General of the Arab League, Ahmed Abou al-Gheit.

Speaking at the opening of the 31st session of the Arab summit, Abu al-Gheit called for “strengthen Arab societies and strengthen their resilience in the face of imminent shocks”.

Such reflection can only materialize in a “collective framework and a complementary approach”he insisted, noting that the effectiveness of Arab action is dependent on the mobilization of Arab capacities, major and diversified, in a correct and scientific way.

He added that the Arab food security strategy, presented at the summit, is only a model and an example of what the Arab countries can undertake collectively to face their crises.

In addition, the SG of the pan-Arab organization pointed out that the global situation further exacerbates the problems of Arab countries, some of which live in situations that threaten not only their security and stability, but their very existence.

“The national, sovereign and independent state is under fierce attack in some areas of the region by terrorism, militias and armed groups, as well as by non-Arab parties”lamented Abu al-Gheit.

And to maintain that it is no longer acceptable to entrust the management of the Arab crises to the international community, already preoccupied with other urgent and pressing issues, noting that “the Arab will is able to intervene effectively to resolve Arab crises, provided that it federates its forces”.

The Secretary General of the Arab League reviewed the developments of the Palestinian question, recalling that the defense of this central cause is the duty of every Arab.

He stressed that the Arab consensus is still maintained around the two-state solution as a means to end the occupation and establish an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with Al-Quds East as its capital.
