Moroccan government regrets Arab summit postponement
Morocco-Regional, Politics, 3/30/2004
The Moroccan Government has voiced "regret" over the postponement of the Arab Summit that was due today in Tunis, minister of communication and Government spokesman Nabil Abdallah said here Monday.
The Government, he added, has called for "speeding up efforts to hold, as soon as possible, this summit under the Tunisian chairmanship."
"we can only call for more consultations and coordination on the draft resolutions to be submitted to this summit, in total respect of each country's advice," said the minister at a briefing following a cabinet meeting.
Tunisian authorities decided early Sunday to postpone the summit due to "differences" between member countries of the Arab league on "fundamental" and "extremely important" proposals on reforms.
Earlier, King Mohammed VI of Morocco expressed regret for the postponement of this summit and said it should be held as soon as possible to "meet the aspirations of Arab peoples in the materialization of Arab solidarity, promote Arab joint action, and undertake the necessary and adequate reforms to be in line with international changes." He added that the specificity of all member countries of the Arab league should be taken into account.
In addition, King Mohammed VI highlighted the interest that should be given to the latest developments in the regional and international scenes given the difficult circumstances in the region and the challenges it is facing.
