The leaders of Egypt, Jordan and Bahrain met in Cairo Monday in the latest in a flurry of mini-summits in the Arab world concerning Iraq and Syria. No joint statement was issued after the talks among Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak, Jordan's King Abdullah II and the king of Bahrain, Sheik Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa. But Egyptian presidential spokesman Suleiman Awwad told reporters that the three leaders held "a common understanding" on the need to help the Iraqi political process succeed. He added that the three heads of state discussed Syria and Lebanon, but he gave no common view on the issue. The leaders also agreed "to continue supporting the Palestinian Authority at this critical stage and to help the Palestinian economy to flourish," Awwad said.
