STORYLINE:
Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby met with UN-Arab League Special Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi on Monday, March 18, where they held talks over the latest developments of the Syrian crisis and ways to put an end to the ongoing unrest in the country.
According to a press release issued by the League, the meeting tackled the latest developments in the Syrian crisis in light of the consultations conducted by Brahimi with a number of senior international officials during his recent trip, which included a number of countries.
In a press conference after the meeting, Arab League Chief held the UN Security Council responsibility for the ongoing bloodshed in Syria.
He added that the Arab League asked the Security Council last year in April formally to work to stop the fighting in Syria, and then search for a political settlement and not vice versa, stressing that these steps are followed in such matters of conflicts since 1945.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Arab League Chief Nabil al-Araby:
“Generally since 1945 when fighting is increasing in any country, the Security Council has to interfere to end the fighting then search for a political settlement and not vice versa. The Security Council is hesitant over the Syrian crisis and can’t be stabilized on opinion and this is the major problem.” He added that "the current international system based on that when there is a threat to international peace and security, the Security Council has to do its responsibilities to maintain international peace and security but it does not do that.
For his part, Brahimi stressed that the only solution to the crisis in Syria is the political solution and that the bloodshed in Syria will lead only to more bloodshed and instability.
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - UN-Arab League Special Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi:
“We see that the only solution to the Syrian crisis is the political solution. The ongoing fighting will only lead to more fighting and won’t solve the crisis of the Syrian people.” The Cairo meeting coincides with the meeting of the Syrian Opposition Coalition members and Syrian National Coalition members in Istanbul to form an interim government.

He said that the Arab League called on UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to take an immediate action to end the Israeli attacks on the Palestinian strip.

He added that Iraq has called for holding a meeting of the Arab states' chiefs of staff over the ongoing violence in Gaza. Al-Araby said that the invitation to the meeting has been sent to all Arab countries and that the Arab League was waiting for their reply.

The Arab League Chief announced that three of Arab foreign ministers who accompanied him during his recent visit to Gaza told him that their countries supported the convening of emergency Arab summit as requested by the Palestinian Authority at a recent Arab League meeting.

Suleiman: Israel Plants Cluster Bombs...
Beirut, Lebanon
By Video Cairo Sat
15 Oct 2012

Lebanese President Michel Suleiman said on Monday, October 15, that Israel has never stopped damaging vast agricultural areas to displace citizens, adding that Israel should stop aggressions against people in agricultural zones of Southern Lebanon.
Suleiman gave a speech at a conference, marking the occasion of World Food Day, organized by the Lebanese Ministry of Agriculture in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.
The conference was organized under the slogan “Agricultural Cooperatives Feed the World”.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Lebanese President Michel Suleiman:
“The courtiers resorting to aggression and occupation should be forced to retreat and submit to international will. This applies to Israel, which has not stopped since its establishment, resorting to aggression and various aggressive practices, including damaging vast agricultural areas, uprooting tens of thousands of trees and burning gardens in order to displace farmers and villagers of whole towns, and broaden its area and impose a new reality. Isn’t planting cluster bombs and mines in Southern Lebanon a type of masked occupation?”
Suleiman said that attention should be given to the agricultural sector through the necessary funding, adding that the act of addressing the issue of food safety remains the Lebanese government’s first duty.
He announced that the government had begun implementing the agriculture development strategy since 2010 and was able so far to develop the agricultural infrastructure. Lebanese President also called for adopting necessary measures to introduce Lebanese products into world markets.
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Lebanese President Michel Suleiman:
“Therefore, the state started to apply the strategy of developing the agricultural sector since 2010 and managed to accomplish many basic stages of this strategy, including the development of agriculture infrastructure, providing studies and research, issuing and developing necessary legislation. All this effort focuses on the necessity of giving Lebanese farmers and all agricultural sectors the ability to be independent and to allow them to gradually go without all forms of government subsidies.”
World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on October 16, the day when the FAO was founded in 1945.
The day is celebrated widely by many other organizations concerned with food security.

Egypt Targets Foreign Investment To R...

Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Kandil said on Tuesday, October 9, at the Euromoney Conference Egypt 2012, held in Cairo, that the government set a strategy targeting more involvement of the private sector to reach a goal of USD 28 billion of foreign investments.
Kandil added in the conference, attended by Euromoney Regional Director Richard Banks, that the government economic reform plan also targets a growth rate of 4.3% in FY 2012/2013 in order to provide about 700,000 job opportunities, noting that the government focuses on small and medium enterprises to achieve a growth rate of more than 7% in the coming five years.
SOUNDBITE 1 (English) - Egypt' PM Hesham Kandil:
“The Egyptian government is committed to economic reform and to a free market economy; an economy that is committed to all its contracts and agreements with local and foreign investors and acknowledges the importance of private sector economic growth. The private sector investments within the last seven years average around 60% to 65% of our investments. This year, we target total investment of 276 billion Egyptian pounds with the private sector expected to play another major role worth 170 billion Egyptian pounds, which is equivalent to 28 billion US dollars.” The two-day conference comes under the title "The Return of the Investments to Egypt and the Distribution of the Fruits of Economic Growth".
The huge annual economic event, attended by Egypt’s ministers of finance, investment and communications, urged foreign investors to overcome concerns regarding Egypt’s stability and to invest in the fast-growing fields of banking and software industry.
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic)- Egypt’s Minister of communications and IT Minister Eng Hani Mahmoud:
“We have a large number of graduates who are qualified to work in the software industry. We also have more than one opportunity for companies to establish centers for software development in Egypt. At the same time, we are also offering to investors the new Technology Park in Maadi.”

SOUNBDITE 3 (Arabic) – Tarek Amer, Chairman of Egypt’s National Bank:
“We, the National Bank, pumped loans worth 22 billion over the past year and a half since the revolution. We continued our work regularly; we weren’t afraid of the circumstances. Yes, of course we had more bank allocations because some customers had problems. However, we still made profits worth much more than these allocations. If you are bold with a good understanding of the market, you can still work and make profit. If we all were afraid, we wouldn’t achieve anything. I can see that our government and the country’s leadership are bold, and the decisions are there to prove it. In the past, we used to lack boldness and decision making. I can see that this has changed today, and that’s why we will move forward.”

For his part, Finance Minister Momtaz Al-Saeed emphasized that investment is the only solution to restore growth and that there is a need to restore investors' confidence in Egypt.
Other officials noted that the country has been trying to attract foreign investors after many left throughout the past year and a half of unrest.
The Euro money conference is the first major economic, financial and business event that takes place in Egypt after the January 25 Revolution.
Euro money is a global financial media company specializing in encouraging, covering and analyzing cross-border flows of investment capital.
