SUDANESE PRESIDENT CALLS FOR CLOSER ARAB CO-ORDINATION TO FACE CHALLENGES

NOUAKCHOTT, MAURITANI, -- Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir says that the challenges and threats facing Arab nations require more efforts and tighter co-ordination among Arab leaders and a revision of joint Arab mechanisms to achieve Arab people's aspirations.

The president told the opening session of the Arab League Summit here Monday that challenges and threats facing the Arab world had almost undermined Arab aspirations and Arab hopes which the Arab nation had been working to achieve for almost 70 years now.

He stressed that Arab countries needed to re-invigorate the Arab League more than at any previous time to achieve Arab co-ordination and to take the lead in conducting a constructive dialogue which would bring about closer Arab ranks and unity.

He said this revision required all Arab parties to recall the lofty values and principles upon which the Arab League was founded and remember the aspirations of the founding fathers of the league and their hopes for joint Arab action.
