Kadhafi receives Amr Moussa in Tripoli

Tripoli- Libya (PANA) -- Visiting Arab League secretary general Amr Moussa of Egypt on Wednesday had an audience with Libyan leader Col.
Moammar Kadhafi in Tripoli, the country's news agency, JANA, reported.
It said that the two leaders examined the latest developments in the Arab world, particularly the war of extermination and embargo imposed on Palestinians by Israeli army of occupation.
They underscored the need for Arab League nations to adopt concerted action and firm attitudes in view of the ongoing arrests, repression and embargo against the Palestinian people and their leader, President Yasser Arafat.
The Israeli army recently burnt Gaza airport, destroyed houses and murdered Palestinian political leaders.
Kadhafi and Moussa also urged international organisations to take concrete actions to end these terrorist acts.
The Arab League secretary general briefed Kadhafi on preparations for the organisation's next summit billed for 29 March in Beirut, Lebanon.
According to JANA, the two leaders insisted that the summit be held on the agreed date.
However, Libya requested that the meeting be organised at the league's headquarters in Cairo on the same date because a Lebanese Shiite faction has asked for its postponement.
Amr Moussa had said on arrival in Tripoli earlier on Wednesday that he was in Tripoli as part of the preparations for the forthcoming Arab summit.
