Arab Summit will not issue a statement or resolutions

The Arab Summit scheduled to be held in Kuwait Tuesday will not issue a final statement, unlike other Summits in the past, a Kuwaiti diplomat told Al-Arab Al-Youm newspaper Monday.


The diplomatic source said that Kuwait will issue a "declaration" after the end of the Summit, and that the declaration is "ready and will be announced at the closing session". The declaration will not include resolutions, but rather will reflect the positions of the hosting country, and will be on behalf of Arab leaders.

The Kuwaiti declaration will address the political developments in the region, particularly the Palestinian and Syrian issues, in addition to Arab development and common Arab concerns such as education, women and the economy. The Kuwaiti deputy Foreign Minister had said earlier that the summit would not address Gulf reconciliation, an issue he said should be discussed within the Gulf Cooperation Council.
