On its first day, the summit discussed how members of the Arab League can work together to develop a united stance on various issues affecting the region and promote cooperation to tackle regional and international challenges.
The event started with an address by Kais Saied, President of Tunisia, the Chair of the previous Arab League Summit, in which he highlighted challenges facing the Arab world due to the economic impact of the pandemic. He called on Arab nations to work together to combat vital challenges.
President Abdelmadjid Tebboune said the summit is taking place at a time when the world is going through serious challenges and the Arab world has the resources and capabilities to be a major global economic power.
He added that the region should work collectively to identify key development priorities in order to make a positive impact on people’s lives.
The 31st edition of the Arab League Summit is the first to be held after the outbreak of the pandemic. The last summit took place in Tunisia in 2019.
