Arab League disunity offers no hope for the region
Text size Aa Aa

The Arab League summit in Kuwait has been a meeting to deal with the differences arising from the war in Syria, instability in Libya and Egypt and the growing violence in Lebanon.

One issue the summit found unity on was the Palestinian refusal to recognise Israel.

Gulf News Editor Francis Matthews highlights the raft of difficulties facing the Arab world:
“There are some major crisis in the area which are almost insolvable. Iraq is collapsing, Syria is in a middle of civil war, there is a discussion is going on with the P5 and Iran and Egypt is going through a process of rehabilitating his nationalist rulers.”

Our correspondent in the Gulf region is François Chignac: “The Arab League summit in Kuwait occupies the front page of the daily newspapers here, The National from Abu Dhabi, the conservative Khaleej Times and the popular Gulf News. All the columnists and journalists, agree there is a terrible crisis in the Gulf countries, the divisions are Syria, and the Muslim Brotherhood and they cannot be solved in 48-hours.”
