KHARTOUM, Sudan’s State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hamid Mumtaz, is leading the country’s delegation to an emergency ministerial-level meeting of the Arab League Council in Cairo, demanded by Saudi Arabia.
The meeting has issued a statement condemning the launching of a ballistic missile from Yemeni territory targeting Riyadh in Saudi Arabia. The ministers considered the act as a flagrant aggression against Saudi Arabia and as targeting Arab national security.
The statement also underscored the legitimate right of Saudi Arabia to adopt the required measures, in the context of international legitimacy, against the Iranian violations.
Another statement was issued after the meeting Sunday on the decision of the United States Administration to close down the office of the Palestinian Liberation Movement in Washington.
The ministerial council affirmed the Arab countries’ commitment to the just and inclusive peace as a strategic option and continuity of the efforts to realize this goal on the basis of the two states solution and in accordance with the Arab peace initiative and the relevant resolutions of the international legitimacy.
The council decided to call on the US Administration to reconsider its decision on closure of the Palestinian Liberation Movement’s office in Washington so as to carry out its ordinary role in boosting communication between the American administration and the State of Palestine for launching fresh and purposeful negotiations between Palestine and Israel.
