Arab League chief: Arab region needs tranquility not escalation

CAIRO, Secretary-General of the Arab League Ahmad Abul-Gheit has underlined the need for calmness not escalation to help stop regional conflicts and avoid igniting or sustaining them.

In a press statement on Sunday, he expressed growing concerns about the rapid developments in Iraq since January 2.

“The events of the past days revealed the size of foreign interference in Arab affairs and its high political, economic and security cost,” he argued.

He hoped Arab countries would move to end these interventions and preserve their sovereignty.
