The West puts pressure on the Arab countries and requires them to condemn Russia's actions in Ukraine, said in an interview with Sada TV channel el-Balad Secretary General of the Arab League (LAS) Ahmed Abu al-Gheit.

He added that the Arab countries have a common position on the Russian-Ukrainian crisis. “I hope that the Arab countries will be able to maintain their security and that the Russian-Ukrainian conflict will not affect the stability in the region”, — al-Gheith noted.

In his opinion, military operations in Ukraine could drag on “for years”; and will have serious consequences.

In April, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri said that the countries of the League of Arab States intend to facilitate negotiations between Russia and Ukraine and are ready to mediate in this process.

The Arab League expressed concern over the worsening humanitarian situation in Ukraine, as well as the negative impact of hostilities on the country's economy. They called on the parties to the conflict to follow the path of diplomatic settlement and dialogue.

The League of Arab States includes 22 states, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Tunisia, Morocco, Bahrain. The headquarters of the organization is located in Cairo, the current Secretary General al-Geyt— former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Egypt.
