The Arab Regional Order and the Resolutions of the Twenty-Sixth Arab Summit

  • 15 April 2015

The Arab region, battling several challenges, is now confronting one of the most difficult periods it has faced in recent history.

These challenges are perpetuated by the wealth owned by countries in the Arab world; its prospective growth due to its mineral wealth, economic potential, geostrategic position and its sizeable population are factors that intimidate its enemies, whether within the region or abroad.

It has become imperative for Arab countries to achieve a new level of unity to confront the challenges they face, based on shared convictions. This will ensure their stability, common interests, collective security and economic integration, and will confirm the rights and duties of all Arab citizens. The new system must be comprehensive and binding for all, in order to avoid current threats.

The greatest threat facing the Arab world now is existential, and the idea of joint Arab national security should be advanced for three reasons. First, the restoration of the state’s role and prestige; second, it would deter the expansion of political, sectarian or denominational conflicts; and third, collective action could help combat existing conflicts in a number of Arab states including Yemen, Iraq, Syria and Libya by formulating common security and political strategies.
