The General Secretariat of the Arab League announced that Qatar will host a consultative meeting of the League Council at the level of Arab foreign ministers on 8 June. The meeting is part of the League's keenness to increase the frequency and intensity of consultation on topics of common interest.
Ambassador Hossam Zaki, Assistant Secretary-General of the Arab League explained that the meeting comes within the framework to raise the pace and intensity of consultation on topics of common interest to member states, primarily topics of a political nature. The consultative meeting allows ministers to exchange views and debate informally and without adhering to a specific agenda or issuing official statements and documents.
Doha's request to host a consultative meeting comes in the light of recent developments in the Middle East, perhaps most notably are the Israeli-Palestinian war, the victory of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, with a very large new mandate, and the beginning of the emergence of a large public awareness in the Arab world, which rejects the actions of its governments, particularly in the face of their recent positions on the Israeli-Palestinian war.
