Habib stated that the exact list of attendees had not yet been finalized. However, Aboul Gheit is set to meet with President Michel Aoun on Saturday, according to a government source according to Asharq Al-Awsat. The chairman of the Arab League stated the next consultative ministerial meeting of the organization would be held in Algeria which was originally scheduled for March but was postponed because of the rise of COVID-19 cases.

The Arab League is a regional association of Arab countries in the Middle East and parts of Africa. It was established in Cairo on March 22, 1945, with the goal of promoting closer political, economic, cultural, and social relations among the members. Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen were the initial members. Other members joined later, including Mauritania, Somalia, and Palestine among others as well. There are four observer states in the Arab League; interestingly, they are Eritrea, India, Brazil, and Venezuela. Each member state has one vote in the League Council, but the outcomes bind only the states that cast those votes.
