Arab interior ministers convening in Tunisia

The Arab strategy to combat terrorism and the Arab anti-corruption agreement will top the agenda of the Arab interior ministers in Tunisia next week.

The two-day annual gathering on March 16 and 17 is likely to endorse several accords to fight corruption, cyber crimes, terror-sponsoring, money-laundering and transnational crimes.

The strategy to combat narcotics trafficking, an Arab plan to develop a civil defense strategy, and an agreement on transferring prisoners will also be tabled for review by the interior ministers of the Arab countries.

The United Nations, the Arab League, the Gulf Cooperation Council, the Arab Maghreb Union and the Arab Labour Organisation are expected to attend the meeting.

The Arab interior ministers regularly hold their meetings in Tunis. However, last year, they convened in Beirut and only the Libyan minister did not attend.
