Ref: State 67135

1. Post delivered reftel points from the Secretary to
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for
Foreign Affairs Shaykh Hamdan bin Zayed on March 27,
the day before Arab League Summit host Tunisia
announced that it was canceling the meeting.

2. A public statement issued by UAE Foreign Minister
Rashid Abdullah on March 29 endorsed President
Mubarak's initiative to hold the Arab League Summit in
Cairo instead of in Tunis. Abdullah said holding the
summit in Cairo at the Arab League headquarters was
normal because Arab leaders had agreed that the summit
must be regularly held in Cairo unless the country
currently chairing the league chooses to host the
summit. Abdullah said the summit's suspension was not
because of the issue of reform in the Arab world, nor
issues on the agenda. He said Tunisia suspended the
summit citing differences on a number of issues
presented for discussion by Tunisia, which saw those
issues as important toward achieving development,
modernization, and reform in Arab countries.
