posted on 22/08/2006: 610 views


Cairo - Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan has reiterated Arab countries' willingness to support Lebanon. Sheikh Abdullah, who presided over the meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo, said that efforts to help Lebanon were already on the ground.



"Planeloads of aid land daily in Beirut. There are pledges to re-build schools, hospitals and whole villages in south Lebanon, to make deposits in the Lebanese Central Bank and to provide direct financial assistance to the government," he added. Sheikh Abdullah was addressing the post meeting press conference with Amr Musa, Secretary General of Arab League.



On the calls to hold an Arab summit, Sheikh Abdullah said that proposals were already made by Yemen and Tunisia and that many countries welcomed holding of the summit. "It is for the Secretary General to arrange for a successful summit," he noted.



Commenting on the UN Resolution 1701, Sheikh Abdullah urged the Security Council to get firm with Israel and force it to cease violation of the resolution. "No international community member should violate the international law. Unfortunately, Israeli is currently doing that." Musa said that Arab stand is evolving and that there is a consensus among the Arab countries on the next step to be taken by the League. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
