The Arab League’s annual ministerial meeting to be be held in Cairo next week will discuss the Israeli attack on the Yarmouk Industrial Complex in Khartoum, Sudan.

According to the Sudanese Media Services Centre, the League’s Deputy Secretary General, Ahmed Bin Heli, called the attack “a dangerous precedent”. The Arab League, he said, had issued a clear statement condemning this act of aggression. He stressed the importance of Arab coordination in support of Sudan’s position when the issue is raised at the UN Security Council.

Ambassador Bin Heli added that a meeting will be held between Arab and European states in preparation for the final version of the Cairo Declaration, which will be the outcome of the Arab-European ministers’ meeting on November 23.
