The Deputy Secretary-General of the Arab League Hossam Zaki stated in an interview with Asharq Al-Awsat that "the level of representation at the economic summit does not diminish its importance, because the Arab countries are represented at the level of heads of government or Foreign Ministers ", emphasizing that" What is most important is to participate in the summit and approve the decision that will be binding on those who participated. "
"We feel a great Lebanese interest at the highest levels and very warm to host the summit, and therefore the Lebanese road will not be touched," Zaki said in response to reports that the summit missed Lebanese interests and hampered the interests of the people Lebanese. And if there are Arab countries that will support the Lebanese economy, Zaki explained that "this is possible, because the situation in Lebanon is putting pressure on the economy".
Regarding the provision of assistance to the countries hosting Syrian refugees, he said that there are positive attitudes: before the conference we could arrive at acceptable formulas that do not contradict international law because a large group of countries agree on this issue. .
"From the substantive point of view, there is more than one important topic such as the digital economy, which is important in the Arab world and also at the global level, and there is a great deal of interest in it, so as the initiative of food security and free trade, which must be further accomplished on them ", adding:" All these issues are beneficial for the Arab countries ".
In the summit resolutions, he stressed that the agenda of the summit will be adopted 24 articles and all the benefits of the Arab countries.
