Arab chiefs of staff meeting held in Cairo

(Cairo) – UAE participated in the second meeting of Arab armed forces’ chiefs of staff at the Arab League’s Secretariat General in Cairo, which was dedicated to complete discussions on the formation of a joint Arab military force to address challenges and threats facing the Arab national security, particularly those from terrorist groups.
The UAE delegation was led by Lt. General Hamad Mohammed Thani Al Rumaithi, Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces, and included Mohammed bin Nakhira Al Dhaheri, the UAE’s Ambassador to Egypt and Permanent Representative at the Arab League.
The chief of staff of the Egyptian army, Lt. General Mahmoud Hegazy, who chaired the meeting, underscored that chiefs of staff of Arab armies must implement the Sharm El Sheikh Arab Summit’s resolution for creating a joint Arab force before 29th July, 2015.
‘In fact, we should finish our job before the 29th of July to give the Summit Presidency at least a month to conduct consultations in that respect,’ Hegazy said in his address before the meeting.
The Arab military commander examined a draft of the optional protocol regarding the formation of the joint force and an explanatory note on implementation of the summit’s relevant resolution to safeguard the Arab national security.
