Algeria has denied allegations that the Arab League’s 31st summit has been postponed.
According to a statement from the Algerian Foreign Ministry, Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra met with Arab League ambassadors.
According to the statement, Lamamra told the ambassadors that the meeting in Algeria has yet to be scheduled.
As a reminder, Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune announced, twice in 2021, the date of March 23, 2022, for the organization of the 31st summit. Wanting to make this meeting an opportunity to “weld Arab ranks,” the Algerian president had instructed, during the last week, the head of diplomacy, Ramtane Lamamra, to increase contacts with Arab leaders.
For this purpose, Lamamra visited the UAE, Qatar, and Egypt, where he met the senior officials of these countries.
According to Lamamra, “President Abdelmadjid Tebboune is committed to continuing consultation and coordination with his brothers, leaders of Arab countries and officials of the General Secretariat of the Arab League, and this, within the framework of the pursuit of direct contacts and periodicals with many of his Arab counterparts as well as those of his personal envoy.”
Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune proposed holding the summit at the same time as his country’s 60th anniversary of the country’s independence, which is a historical and national emblem, he said.
According to the statement, the suggestion will be reviewed during the Arab League’s foreign ministers conference in March.
