Tunisian President, Arab League scribe meet Friday

Tunis- Tunisia (PANA) -- Arab League secretary general Amr Moussa is due here on Friday for discussions with Tunisian President Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali as part of a tour with similar stops in Morocco and Algeria, sources affirmed Tuesday at the Arab League secretariat in Cairo.
Media reports quoted Moussa as confirming the Maghreb trip just as he was about to leave Cairo Tuesday for a meeting in the Egyptian resort town of Sharm El-Sheikh with Arab League chairman, King Sheikh Hamad bin Eissa of Bahrain.
Both were scheduled to discuss the date and venue for the Arab League summit that failed to hold in Tunis last Monday.
"There are no Syrian or GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) reservations on Tunisia hosting the summit," Moussa was quoted as affirming, adding that talks on the issue were continuing among Arab Foreign Ministers and leaders.
Concerning reports of a planned mini-summit Wednesday in Sharm El-Sheikh grouping host President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, the King of Bahrain, Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah and Syrian President Bashar Assad, the Arab League secretary general said the meeting "could not be an alternative to the annual summit.
