CAIRO: Arab League Secretary General Nabil el-Arabi left for the UAE on Thursday to take part in a high-level ministerial UN meeting on climate changes in Abu Dhabi.
The two-day meeting, that will start on Sunday, aims at encouraging cooperation for a better application of the practical solutions that could help fight climate changes.
The meeting also aims at coming up with effective suggestions ahead of the climate change summit to take place in New York on September 23.
On the sidelines of the meeting, Arabi will hold talks with UN chief Ban Ki-moon on the UN efforts to seek a political solution to the three-year-old crisis in Syria and the international community’s stance towards the Palestinian-Israeli negotiations.
From Abu Dhabi, Arabi will fly to Athens where he will take part in an Arab-European meeting aiming at strengthening investments between Europe and the Arab world.
He will hold talks with the Greek premier and foreign minister before leaving back home on Tuesday.
