Algeria says to host Arab summit in March

The summit had been scheduled to be held in 2020 but was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.


“Algeria will host the next Arab summit in March,” Tebboune said during a meeting with heads of diplomatic missions in the North African nation.


He said a main issue on the summit’s agenda will be “renewing the collective Arab commitment to the Palestinian cause and reiterating commitment to the Arab Peace Initiative.”


The 2002 Arab Peace Initiative calls for establishing diplomatic relations with Israel in exchange for withdrawal from all Arab territories occupied by Tel Aviv.


Tebboune said the summit will also discuss the reform of the Arab League, without giving any further details about the proposed reform.
