"League of Arab States": Economic Summit in Beirut to be held on schedule

Arab League Secretary-General Hossam Zaki confirmed that the Arab Economic Summit will be held on January 19 and 20 in Beirut despite requests for postponement.

"There is no Arab consensus on Syria's return to attend Arab League meetings," Zaki told AFP by telephone.

The participation of Syrian government delegations at any Arab League meeting was suspended in November 2011.

"There are no plans to discuss Syria's participation at the annual Arab summit (to be held next March in Tunisia) during the Beirut summit," said Zaki, who is currently in Beirut to follow up preparations for the summit.
