Arab-African Summit Postponed

The fifth Arab-African Summit, initially scheduled for March 16 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, has been postponed to a later date, announced on Monday the Arab League.

The Arab and African countries will agree on a new date, added the pan-Arab organization, noting the postponement was decided at the request of the African Union to ensure better organization of the event.

The first Arab-African summit was convened in 1977 in Cairo, the second in Sirte in Libya in 2010, the third in Kuwait in 2013, and the fourth in Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea, in 2016.

The summit aims to build joint strategies and employ Arab and African resources in the service of the people. It underlines the solidarity among the people as they seek stability, security and development.
