(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) CAIRO, May 28 (KUNA) -- Arab League Secretary General Nabil Al-Araby has extolled the strenuous efforts exerted by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to create environment conducive to the success of Yemeni peace talks. Speaking at the extraordinary Arab foreign ministers meeting, held in Cairo on Saturday, Al-Araby hoped the talks would make the desired progress to agree on a peaceful solution to the conflict. He stressed that this progress should be based on the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Initiative and its Implementing Mechanism, the UN Security Council Resolution 2216 and the outcome of the Yemeni national dialogue.
Al-Araby also called for intensifying the efforts to put into effect the Arab Leaders' resolution in Sharm Al-Sheikh Summit to form a joint Arab force to boost Arab security and counter the growing threat of terrorism.
"We hope this force would see light after the upcoming summit in Nouakchott next July," he said.
He wished the coming summit would end up with resolutions that live up to Arab people's aspirations and overcome the enormous challenges facing the Arab world, especially those related to the national security.
The Arab League chief commended Egyptian President Abdelfatah Al-Sisi and French President Francios Hollande's initiatives to revive the stalled Mideast peace process.
He reiterated Arab countries' unwavering support to the Palestinian people's rights.
On Libya, Al-Araby called for a swift action to remove obstacles hampering the implementation of the Libyan Political Agreement which was signed in Morocco on December 17, 2015 and approved by the UN Security Council in its Resolution 2259 (2015) as a key element for the settlement of the Libyan crisis.
Libya's security and stability is key for Arab security and stability, especially security of its neighboring countries, he warned.
He urged greater support for the Libyan Presidency Council, headed by Prime-Minister Fayez al-Sarraj, to help it deliver its mission.
On Syria, Al-Araby admitted that the international efforts to resume intra-Syrian talks are facing many difficulties.
This requires intensive efforts from the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) to ensure a nationwide cessation of hostilities, he stated.
He stressed the necessity of pressing all warring parties to allow easy access of humanitarian aid to the civil population across the war-torn country and to resume peace talks to help bring an end to the conflict.
On Iraq, Al-Araby expressed full support to the Iraqi government in its fight against the so-called Islamic State terrorist organization.
The Iraqi government's war on the IS should be coincided with measures to enhance national unity, he concluded. (end) mfm.rg.ibi
