Saudi Arabia wants to hosts 2007 Arab summit

January 15, 2007 23:58

Saudi Arabia has asked Arab leaders to convene their annual summit in the kingdom's capital, reversing an earlier decision not to host it, the Arab League chief said Monday. The Saudi decision seems to reflect the kingdom's willingness to play a major role in regional politics amid mounting conflicts in Iraq, Lebanon, the Palestinian Authority and the Gulf. Amr Moussa, the League's Secretary-General, said he received a letter from the Saudi government saying the kingdom is now ready to host the summit in Riyadh. "I will relay this to all the Arab governments," he said.
