The Arab League on Saturday announced it would host next week a conference on war-wracked Libya, which will be attended by UN chief Ban Ki-moon and the European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
The April 14 gathering will focus on political solutions to the crisis and "reinforce coordination between the Arab League, UN, African Union and Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC)," league number two Ahmed Ben Helli said.
Amr Mussa, who heads the 22-member pan-Arab body based in the Egyptian capital, OIC chief Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu and Jean Ping, head of the African Union Commission, will also attend the conference.
The gathering will take place a day after a meeting of the Libya contact group, set for April 13 in the Qatari capital Doha.

Pakistans ambassador, Abdullah Hussain Haroon, told a closed meeting at U.N. headquarters in New York this week that the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and the Arab League have clear demands for representation in an enlarged council, according to reports in Pakistani media.
In line with new realities, it is important to increase interaction with and to embed the role of regional organizations in a Security Council of the future, Haroon was quoted as saying.
Chaired by Afghanistans ambassador, a process of intergovernmental negotiations on Security Council reform is currently moving through a fifth round of talks, the previous four rounds having achieved little beyond highlighting the many differences among individual states and groups of states.”
