Assistant Secretary-General of the Arab League Hossam Zaki said that the Libyan file is one of the important files for the Arab League, and for every session there are decisions.
During his interview with the “dmc” channel, Zaki stated: “There are developments in the Libyan file and that these developments could lead Libya to safety.”
He pointed out that there are some matters and some elements threatening stability in Libya, indicating that the Arab League is communicating and cooperating with international organizations such as the United Nations so that there are identical positions in order for there to be stability in Libya.
He stated: “We do not want mercenaries, but rather for Libya to be for the Libyans, and for the militias to be eliminated, and there will be one entity, one government and one Libyan weapon.”
He stressed that during the coming period there will be many challenges until the end of the year.
On Monday, High-level diplomatic sources announced that several Arab countries support the renewal of Zaki’s appointment as Assistant Secretary-General of the League of Arab States.
The sources emphasized that Zaki enjoys wide approval from the delegates, in light of the diplomatic efforts and contributions he has made since he assumed the position of Assistant Secretary-General of the League of Arab States since 2016, such as supporting joint Arab action, and enriching the secretariat’s work.
The Arab League was formed in Cairo on March 22, 1945 initially with six members: Egypt, Iraq, Transjordan (renamed Jordan in 1949), Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Syria.
Yemen joined as a member on May 5, 1945. Currently, the league has 22 members, but Syria’s participation has been suspended since November 2011.
