Foreign Ministers of Arab countries gathered for a one-day meeting in Cairo to discuss the situation in the region.

Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit reaffirmed the Arab League's commitment to respect Palestinians' right to establish their state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Commenting on the situation in Yemen, he added: "The UN-led peace process in Hodeidah is a good step to reduce military escalation and [is] confidence-building, but it continues to be hampered by the Houthi side, who are responsible for deteriorating humanitarian situation."
