CAIRO: Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit has said protests that swept across the region in 2011 weakened many states in the region.
Aboul Gheit’s remarks came during a lecture he gave at Cairo University, attended by students and university professors.
Aboul Gheit was asked to comment by a student about the future of Arab states.
Aboul Gheit replied saying that the first step towards creating the future is to restore and strengthen national states, and to strengthen their internal immunity and their ability to meet the needs of their citizens.
