Caid Essesbi calls for boosting joint arab action to settle regional conflicts

President Beji Caid Essesbi called for the need to step up joint Arab action, pointing out the Arab Ummah’s historic role in solving regional conflicts facing the dangers of extremism and terrorism.

Addressing the 29th Arab Summit in Dhahran (Saudi Arabia), the Head of the State indicated that this high-level meeting is being held at a crucial moment in which the Arab zone is facing major challenges and unprecedented crises, that constitute a real threat for the security, stability and development of the Arab nation.

Essesbi reviewed the conflicts and the dangerous escalation at the regional level since the last Arab Summit in Amman, which have worsened and not even defused during the previous summit, voicing wish that this 29th meeting will be crowned by resolutions for peace.

In another connection, the Head of State affirmed that the Palestinian people who struggle to recover their legitimate rights, are in need more than ever for a strong and unified position in regional and international authorities to support their legitimate claims to put an end to the Israeli colonisation and to violations in the holy land, for a sovereign and independent state with Al-Quds as its capital, in compliance with international resolutions and at the Arab peace initiative.

Reviewing the national and international efforts to end conflicts in a number of Arab countries, Essesbi recalled that this historical responsibility lies primarily with the Arab countries themselves.

Tunisia had presented in co-ordination with Algeria and Egypt, an initiative to help Libya reach a comprehensive political settlement through dialogue and concord within a United Nation framework and in compliance with the Skhirat political agreements (Morocco), he recalled.

Besides, the President of the Republic pointed out that the ongoing crisis in Syria and what it has generated as a human tragedy and unprecedented damage requires a real action to help the Syrian people recover security and stability and rebuild their future.

He expressed deep concern over the deterioration of the situation in Syria following Friday’s military attacks against Syrian sites, calling in this regard to mobilise all efforts at the international level to avoid escalation and find a comprehensive political solution for the crisis.

Regarding Yemen, Caid Essebsi called all stakeholders to prioritise political dialogue to reach reconciliation while preserving the county’s unity.

He firmly condemned the indiscriminate attacks against Saudi Arabia, warning however that terrorism remains the greatest danger against Arab countries’ stability, security and development.
