Following his appointment as the new Secretary General of the League of Arab States, I wish H.E. Mr. Ahmed Abul Gheit every success in his new role.
Mr. Abul Gheit´s experience, determination and leadership will be crucial in driving the League's initiatives forward in a region faced with multiple challenges and opportunities.
I look forward to working closely with Mr. Abul Gheit and the League of Arab States as a key partner of the EU.
My thanks and appreciation go to the outgoing Secretary General, H.E. Mr. Nabil El Arabi for the constructive and excellent co-operation we have had over the past years
