Baghdad will receive the leaders of the Parliaments of several Arab nations in an extraordinary meeting of the Arab parliamentary Union, which will express its support for Baghdad against a military strike by the United States of America.
The Presidents of the Parliaments of Yemen, Syria, Algeria and Qatar and the Vice-presidents of those of Egypt and Jordan arrived in Baghdad on Monday for an extraordinary meeting to reiterate the support of their governments for Baghdad, against a military attack on Iraq by the USA and in favour of a diplomatic solution for the crisis.
Kuwait, invaded by Iraq in 1990 after allegedly pursuing a practice of cross-drilling (stealing Iraqi oil reserves from across the border), will not send representatives, although the Foreign Minister of this country has already declared himself in favour of a diplomatic solution.
