Mideast Egypt

Mauritania is going to host the Arab Summit meeting on July 25 and 26, after Morocco apologized for holding the summit in its country.

Large tents have been set up for the big Arab event by Mauritania, which failed to get a conference hall ready for the summit for lack of time, media sources said.

Mauritanian Foreign Minister Isselkou Ould Ahmed Izid Bih informed Arab ambassadors of the official date of the summit, saying Mauritania decided to host the summit meeting on July 25 and 26.
