Qathafi: Arab League is useless because Arab leaders just talk to appease citizens about Arab unity
Libya-Egypt, Politics, 11/1/2002
Following his meeting yesterday with the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Tripoli, Libya's Leader of the Revolution Colonel Muammar al Qathafi adhered to the decision of Libya's pullout from the Arab League, considering that this decision is grave, but we are obliged to do so."
Qathafi questioned " why should we stay in the membership of a futile, ineffective league?" Al-Qathafi's assertion was made despite the announcement made by Mubarak who expressed during the meeting his "great regret" over the request submitted by Libya, that they have agreed to "continue work in order to revitalize Arab working establishments to be able to withstand challenges facing the Arabs," and his saying "should every country pullout from the AL this League will come to nothing."
Qathafi said in a statement prior to Mubarak's leaving back to Cairo "Nothing new has happened after I applied for pullout." He added "the withdrawal decision is serious but we are obliged to do so." He questioned " why should we stay as members in an ineffective league," stressing the need of "implementing the joint Arab charters and joint Arab defense and the economic Arab unity."
Mubarak said in a statement to the press before leaving Libya, which was his last leg in conclusion of a tour which took him to Morocco and Tunisia " should every country pullouts from the Arab League this AL will end." Mubarak indicated that he had discussed with the Arab leaders" the Arab position and the grave condition in the Arab territories and the threat to launch an aggression against Iraq. He stressed that all Arabs understand the situation and all of us are proceeding into one direction."
