these nations should offer proposals aimed at solving the issue he said adding that the arab league should be the place where these plans are delivered. 'as long as everyone (arab league member states) is convinced that there is no military solution to the problem then they are obligated to a political solution. and it is appropriate that they should come with a workplan on how this could be presented at the negotiating table' he said. separately on joint arab antiterrorism measures adopted at the summit he said algeria could offer a lot on this due to its experience on the matter. fulfilling these measures was declared crucial by egyptian foreign ministry spokesperson badr abdel atti who said that his country is tasked with ratifying an agreement on this.

egypt will do its utmost to try and organize a joint meeting of arab interior and justice ministers to discuss the goal he said. furthermore reporters in turkey voiced their satisfaction of the summit of arab countries held for the first time in kuwait. deputy general manager of ihlas news ageny ismail balli views that the event managed to come up with some practical solutions to problems facing the region. this is due to the wisdom of the kuwaiti leadership and its extended hand policy he said. also ulke tv's head of news hasan ozturk said that kuwait had provided all the ingredients for the success of the event describing the talks as 'historic frank and bold.' 'the kuwaiti leadership were able despite all obstacles to break through some gloomy arab moods' he said referring to disputes between some of its gulf members.
