Addressing the Arab League meeting in Algeria, the Russian president emphasized Moscow's readiness to strengthen relations with the Arab League.

Iran PressEurope: The 31st Arab League summit started on Tuesday in Algiers, the capital of Algeria, for 2 days. The agenda of this event includes urgent issues in the region, including the situation in Yemen, Libya and Syria, the Palestinian issue, as well as ways to ensure food security and strengthen relations among Arab countries.

On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a message to the heads of Arab countries participating in the 31st "Arab League Summit" that Moscow is ready to strengthen relations with the Arab League for regional and global security.

Developing ties between Moscow and Arab countries is in the common interest of all sides, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday.

"The world is witnessing serious political and economic change. The formation of a multipolar system of international relations is gaining momentum, which is based on the rules of equality, justice and respect for each other's legitimate interests," Putin said in a message sent to a meeting of the Arab League.

"Nations of the Middle East and North Africa, with a combined population of almost half a billion, play an increasingly significant role in this process," he added.

Putin underlined that improving international conditions, countering current threats, and addressing today's challenges would require "a coordinated and collective effort," making multilateral institutions, such as the League of Arab States, all the more crucial. 219
