Arab leaders are considering holding an emergency summit on Lebanon in Saudi Arabia later this week, two Lebanese media outlets reported Monday. Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal was expected to make the call during an emergency meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Beirut Monday, reported the LBC-Hayat newscast on Lebanese Broadcasting Corp. television, quoting Saudi sources. Lebanon's As-Safir newspaper also said contacts were under way among Arab states to hold the summit in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, later this week. Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa was quoted as saying to As-Safir that there is agreement in principle among Arab countries to hold a summit. Moussa, who arrived in Beirut Sunday, added that chances for a summit would become clearer after the meeting of Arab foreign ministers. The foreign ministers were expected in Beirut in the morning for the meeting, which aims to back Lebanon.
