CAIRO - Arab states have agreed to postpone a summit that was scheduled for May 11 in Baghdad, the Arab League announced on Wednesday, amid disputes over the venue and popular unrest rocking the region.

Arab foreign ministers will meet on May 15 to set a new date, Egypt's state news agency MENA quoted the deputy secretary-general of the Arab League, Ahmed Ben Helli, as saying.

"The Arab League today distributed a memorandum to its members stating that due to a request by Iraq to convene an extraordinary meeting of Arab foreign ministers, and in light of the consultations conducted ... with member states, an agreement emerged to delay the summit," Ben Helli was quoted as saying.

Now is the time to join the news event of the year - The Jerusalem Post Annual Conference!
