Good Luck.
Arab League has agreed to make joint Arab "army" that could have 40,000 special troops. It will be little like NATO. When one of member countries of joint army is being attacked, other countries will help defend it. Any member country can ask for help and other countries will help it. Arab League members say new Arab military force will help with many security issues there are in Middle East. The Arab League tweeted that there will be meetings over the next month to study how to create force. The findings of the meetings will be presented to defence ministers of Arab nations within four months. The defence ministers will then decide which countries will provide soldiers and equipment.

Not all Arab League countries supported the idea of joint Arab military force. Iraq said it was against creating such force. It said one Arab country should not use its military in another Arab country. Iraqi spokesperson said best way to sort out problems was to have meetings and discussions. Lebanon also had worries about possible new force. It said any military action should have agreement of most countries. The Arab League also discussed current challenges in region. It asked the Houthi forces in Yemen to leave the capital Sanaa and give up their weapons. League members also discussed the best way to bring peace and stability back to Syria.
