The leaders who gathered at the Arab League summit in Libya on Saturday afternoon called together for a Middle East free of nuclear weapons.

Amr Moussa, who stands at the head of the pan-Arab organization, was quoted by Egyptian newspaper Al-Mesryoon as saying that Arab states were facing a great threat in the form of Israel’s nuclear capability. He warned against a nuclear arms race in the region.

Moussa also reportedly spoke of the Arab Peace Initiative, currently at an impasse due to what the Arab leader termed Israel’s “refusal to withdraw from the occupied Arab territories.”

The leaders at the summit also drafted a resolution concerning Arab solidarity with Lebanon.
