On Thursday, Assistant Secretary-General of the Arab League (AL), Hossam Zaki, said that the decisions of the Council of Arab Foreign Ministers on Wednesday confirmed a clear rejection of Turkish interference in Arab affairs.
Zaki pointed out that the draft resolutions that were presented to the Council were approved, as the two committees issued press statements in this regard.
He asserted that a greater consensus has been observed by the parties interested in the Libyan crisis. “There is a kind of cautious optimism, as the new efforts, may carry good news,” he added.
He went on to say that the Libyan issue needs efforts from all parties in good faith and expressed hope that such efforts will bear fruit soon.
Zaki stressed that the Arab world completely rejects Turkish and Iranian interference in Arab affairs. The Arab League official made sure to point out that both Iran and Turkey adopt converging policies that benefit them at the expense of Arab interests. Zaki explained that these interferences have become a defective order, that Arabs should work to stop.
“There is an Arab rejection to such serious interferences, and there is a great Arab awareness of their dangers,” Zaki concluded.
