Arab leaders gathered in the Algerian capital on Tuesday for the 31st Arab League summit to discuss a number of issues in the region.

The last summit took place in 2019 and this week's summit was postponed several times due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The summit was kicked off with the Tunisian President Kais Saied expressing his hope that the summit held in Algeria would find solutions and bridge the rifts.

“In several regions, we live in a fierce war to confront parties that aim to bring down states,” Saied said before stressing “we have to confront them.”

Additionally, he noted that the difficult conditions experienced by the Arab world have worsened in recent years for several reasons.

“We seek to overcome differences between Arab countries,” Saied added, expressing hope that the Arab summit in Algeria would contribute to resolving differences between Arab countries, according to Sky News Arabia.

The current summit comes amid complex challenges and circumstances in the Arab region, in addition to a turbulent global situation as a result of the Ukraine war and its repercussions of an energy and food crisis.
