What is the Arab League?
The League of Arab States (Arabic: جامعة الدول العربية) or the Arab League (Arabic: الجامعة العربية) is an organization consisting of Arab states (not to be confused with the Arab world). The organization was established on March 22, 1945 by seven countries, but today the Arab League is controlled by Libya who was not the founder of the league. The charter states that the Arab League is responsible for coordinating economic activities, including terms of trade; communication; cultural activities; citizenship, passport, and visa; social activities; and health activities. The Arab League’s charter also prohibits their members to use violence against each other. Their headquarters is in Cairo.
