King Salman Departs for Arab League-EU Summit in Egypt

And Mrs May will meet the European Council president Donald Tusk, ahead of the summit.

The summit will seek to strengthen Arab-European ties.

"Although we do not agree on everything, this Summit will provide an important opportunity for open dialogue on how we can enhance the Euro-Arab partnership and take on regional challenges, including cooperation on migration, security and counter-terrorism". After a family photo at 19.50 there will be a dinner for the heads of delegations. This will be followed by part 2 of the plenary session starting at 12.00.

Pouring cold water on hopes for European concessions on departure terms for Britain at their meeting Sunday in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, an EU official warned "there will be no deal in the desert".

A senior EU official told journalists in Brussels that 24 European heads of state and government have confirmed their attendance.

European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Phil Hogan holds a news conference on the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) post-2020, in Brussels, Belgium June 1, 2018.

Black Panther Song "All the Stars" Won't Be Performed at Oscars
The 37-year-old will perform her nominated track " I'll Fight " for the Best Original Song category from documentary "RGB". The song will also not be performed by another act, according to the trade.

Brexit is not on the agenda but with both Mr Varadkar and Prime Minister May both in attendance they will be vying for the attention of other European Union leaders. But, with little genuine improvement on the significant issues driving instability in the region, the summit may instead symbolise internal conflicts between these two blocs.

About 50 Arab and European leaders and diplomats, including 24 presidents and ministers from the EU will come together during the two-day summit to discuss topics like terrorism, irregular migration, trade, and climate change.

The two regions are already major trade and investment partners.

After the signing of a memorandum of understanding in 2015, the EU and LAS have maintained an advanced relationship through biennial ministerial meetings and annual meetings between the EU Political and Security Committee and the LAS Permanent Representatives.

But the official said broader cooperation with the Arab League, which includes Libya, is limited without the European Union being able to speak in one voice.

It also reflects the EU's intention to play a more comprehensive global role. The equivalent number for natural gas is 19%.
