The emergency meeting of the Arab League Council at the level of permanent representatives began in the Egyptian capital of Cairo yesterday under the chairmanship of Morocco.
Others participating in the meeting include the Arab League's Secretary-General Dr Nabil Al Arabi, and a senior Palestinian delegation headed by Sa'eb Erekat, chief Palestinian negotiator.
The meeting is meant to follow up the implementation of the decision of the Arab Foreign Ministers' Council, held on July 14, to halt Israel's continuous aggression on the Gaza Strip and consider the aggression-related developments.
Sheikh Khalifa bin Ali Al Harthy, Sultanate's Ambassador to Egypt and its Permanent Representative to the Arab League, is representing Oman in the meeting.
The Palestinian delegation is expected to submit a detailed report on the latest developments in the occupied Palestinian territories, the repercussions of Israel's vicious aggression against the Palestinian people, steps that Arab countries should take to support the demands of Palestinians and to ensure they have international protection through the United Nations.
The meeting also reviewed the progress of the Egyptian-brokered indirect talks. The latest truce failed to take hold between the two parties as the Israeli aggression against Gaza continues.
