Egypt’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sameh Shoukry, will head to the Jordanian capital, Amman, on Sunday to participate in the ministerial preparatory meetings of the 28th Arab Summit, according to ministry spokesperson Ahmed Abou Zaid’s statement.
The meeting will discuss the most important developments in the Palestinian territories, the Syrian and Yemeni crises, and the situations in Libya, Iraq, and Somalia.
The ministers will also discuss Arab national security and ways of combating terrorism, as well as the relations of each country with its neighbours.
The ministers attending the meeting will further review various topics, such as ways of reforming the Arab League and developing an Arab vision of how to establish a Middle East free from weapons of mass destruction.
Furthermore, the summit will see the discussion of human rights in the Arab world and of ways to establish an Arab organisation that provides humanitarian aid to refugees and displaced people.
Abou Zaid noted that Shoukry is also scheduled to participate—outside of the summit—in a session on the Syrian crisis. This session will be attended by the United Nations (UN) envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, who will review the most prominent developments in Syria with the Arab foreign ministers.
Shoukry will also hold important bilateral meetings with his Arab counterparts, in which they will discuss the latest developments on Arab issues of common interest.
