Ismailia, Egypt, Asharq Al-Awsat-Ahmad Qadhaf al-Dam, general coordinator of Egyptian-Libyan relations, has underlined the importance of the appeal for Arab unity made by King Abdullah Bin-Abdulaziz, the custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.

He told Asharq Al-Awsat that “there are no disagreements between Libya and Saudi Arabia” and added that there was nothing preventing the exchange of visits between Riyadh and Tripoli and pointed out that Libyan leader Muammar al-Qadhafi has sent live on the air an open invitation to exchange visits. He said the page of the past was closed in favor of joint Arab action during the next stage and added: “There is no disagreement between us and Saudi Arabia but there was a misunderstanding which is now over because the danger to the region does not differentiate between one country and another. Everyone is targeted and we must therefore return to our unity, as the custodian of the Two Holy Mosques had asserted, so that we can work together for the sake of the Arab nation’s interest.”

Qadhaf al-Dam urged the mobilization of forces to confront the real enemy and solve the Arab problems and to distance themselves from any conflicts or disputes that perpetuate the inter-Arab differences. Speaking at a meeting with the Egyptian and Arab media correspondents at the wheat harvest festival in 6,000 feddans that a Libyan company owns in Ismailia Governorate (100 km east of Cairo), he said: “Libya is against any Arab-Arab problems or disputes.”

On holding the next Arab summit in Libya, he said: “We are aspiring for the Tripoli summit to be a qualitative stage in the Arab nation’s history and that the Arabs will reach total agreement during it.” He pointed out that the situation through which the Arab world is going at present requires the unity of their ranks.
