So finally, after a lot of time-wasting and useless rambling, it’s decided that the recently postponed Arab summit will still be held in Tunisia.
Tunisia will host the Arab summit in May, following a preparatory meeting of foreign ministers in Cairo.
When Tunis postponed the summit, the Egyptian government jumped up and offered to host a summit in its place.
Tunisia said it was postponing the summit because some Arab governments were unwilling to make a strong commitment to democracy, human rights and opposing “extremism”. Many delegates have disputed the Tunisian explanation for its decision.
The summit is expected to concentrate on Iraq, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and reform in the Arab world.
