Low expectations as Arab League chiefs gather in Jordan

Foreign ministers of the 22-member Arab League are holding preparatory meetings in Jordan amid low expectations over the bloc's annual heads of states' summit on Wednesday.

This year's conference comes as the region faces a series of pressing challenges, including violent conflicts, rising youth unemployment and millions of children deprived of the right to education.

Ayman Safadi, Jordan's foreign minister, on Monday painted a grim picture as he called member states to come together and urgently confront crises.

"The Arab political system has failed to solve the crises and halt the collapse as the trust of Arab citizens in the joint Arab institutions has eroded," he said.

Safadi told his Arab counterparts that more than 12 million Arab children are being denied access to education, presumably in part because of conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Libya.
