Ahmed Abul Gheit

Egyptian diplomat Ahmed Abul Gheit was named yesterday as the Arab League’s new secretary general. “The consultations resulted in the nomination of Ahmed Abul Gheit to the post of secretary general,” Bahraini Foreign Minister Khaled bin Ahmed al-Khalifa announced in televised remarks at the end of a ministerial meeting. Abul Gheit served as foreign minister under president Hosni Mubarak. Cairo proposed Abul Gheit, 73, for the post after the incumbent, Nabil al-Arabi, another Egyptian, declined a second five-year term as secretary general. His term ends on June 30. Qatar’s Foreign Minister HE Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani participated in the meeting.
