Arab League Summit in Baghdad and Iraq-Syria Relations

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Hugh Sykes reports on the Arab League summit in Baghdad, where only 10 out of 22 leaders of the Arab world have turned up. It's the first time the Arab League summit has been in Iraq since Saddam Hussein's time. As the meeting began, the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon called on members to encourage political freedom across the region, and the main subject of today's summit is Iraq's neighbor Syria.
