Mohammed bin Nakhira Al Dhaheri, UAE Ambassador to Egypt and Permanent Representative at the Arab League, has met with Ahmed bin Heli, Deputy Secretary-General of the Arab League (AL), to co-ordinate on the UAE's presidency of the upcoming 144th ministerial session of the AL's Council.
Al Dhaheri stated that the meeting had discussed the mechanism for accelerating the pace of Arab joint action in various issues and administrative and organisational mechanisms regarding arrangements of the upcoming meetings.
''During its presidency, the UAE will do whatever in its power to advance and support the Arab joint action,'' he said.
An AL source said that an office will be opened for the UAE as next rotating president of the AL's Council at the Secretariat-General to enable their diplomats at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to co-ordinate the agenda and work of the Council during the presidency.
''The opening of the office will be a precedent in the history of the pan-Arab organisation and it will be a boost for the UAE to be the first member state to have that office in the history of Arab joint action,'' he noted.
The two-day 144th works of the AL's Council is scheduled to start on 9th and 10th September at the permanent representative level, to be followed by the foreign ministers' meeting on 13th. - End-
