The Arab League will make a joint Arab "army" that could have 40,000 troops. It will be like NATO. When one member country is being attacked, the other countries will help defend it. Members can ask for help from the other countries. Arab League members say the new force will help with the many security issues in the Middle East. There will be Arab League meetings in the next month to create the force. Then defence ministers of Arab nations will look at the ideas. The defence ministers will then choose which countries will provide the soldiers and equipment.

Not all Arab League countries support the idea. Iraq said it was against it. Iraq said one Arab country should not fight in another Arab country. An Iraqi spokesperson said the best way to sort out problems was to have discussions. Lebanon said any military action should have the agreement of most countries. The Arab League also talked about the challenges in the region today. It asked the Houthi forces in Yemen to leave the capital Sanaa and give up their weapons. The League also discussed the best way to bring peace and stability back to Syria.
