Syria needs $900 billion for reconstruction: Arab League chief

Arab League22/04/2017 (Ahram Online – Egypt): Arab League chief Ahmed Abo El-Gheit has said that the process of reconstruction in Syria, which has been embroiled in a civil war since 2011, will cost $900 billion, Egypt’s state-owned news agency MENA reported on Saturday. Speaking during a celebration marking 70 years since the establishment of the Arab League at Alexandria University, Abo El-Gheit said that the ongoing war in Syria has led to the displacement of roughly five million people, arguing that the pan-Arab organisation is passing through “the most difficult period in its history.” “Fifty percent of the world refugees are Arabs, which means that one in every three refugees is Syrian,” he added. Abo El-Gheit also noted that other Arab states have suffered destruction over the past six years, which “jeopardises the social fabric of Arab societies.”…–billion-for-reconstruction-Arab-Leagu.aspx
