The head of the Arab League said on Thursday that there was need for time to solve regional problems.
Arab League's Secretary General Amr Moussa said that there was need for time to solve some problems caused by the general chaos in the Middle east.
"But I guess that we are walking on the right and strong path," Moussa told a press conference in Istanbul.
The first ministerial meeting of the Turkey-Iraq High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council took place in Istanbul with participation of foreign ministers of Turkey, Iraq and Syria and Arab League's Secretary General Amr Moussa.
Moussa said that he was defining the situation as a summer cloud and hoped to overcome it soon.
The secretary general also said that a comprehensive Turkish-Arab forum would be organized soon on political, economic and cultural issues, and it was important for not only the region but also the entire world.
Moussa said Thursday's meeting could be helpful in ensuring harmony between Iraq and Syria and reducing tension between the media of the two countries.
Regional problems should be solved rapidly and fairly to ensure security of all countries in the geography, Moussa also said.
After the press conference, participants of the meeting set sail in front of the Ciragan Palace for a fast-breaking dinner and a boat tour.
