Sleeping Leaders!! These Four Arab Leaders Prove That African Leaders Are Still Learning..

 

In spite of all the shock that typically takes after pictures of sleeping leaders, particularly, when they are going to essential universal meetings, it appears a great deal of leaders think that its difficult to keep the weakness under control.

A week ago, 16 heads of states from the Arab world gathered  at the Dead Sea in Jordan for the yearly Arab Summit.This year’s summit had a very serious agenda with the Israeli–Palestinian conflict taking front burner. According to reports, delegates at the gathering were expected to revive the 15-year-old Arab Peace Initiative.

Included in the agenda for the 22-member confederation was also discussions on the turmoil and political challenges in Syria, Yemen, Libya, and Iraq. Another serious discussion was a pledge to address Iran’s role in the region after Iran’s military faced accusations of fueling proxy conflicts in many of the embattled countries.

Putting it modestly, it was a rather important summit with a lot of hot-button topics. This is why the pictures of sleeping leaders taken during the sessions are even more unbelievable.

Considering that the same thing happened last year at the summit with the Middle East Observer running a series of very similar pictures that showed Arab leaders falling asleep at their chairs, it seems that the facilitation of the summit must be especially boring.

Africans must be glad to note that it is not only their leaders who take international conferences and other meetings as a chance to catch up on some naps. Although, that is a pretty sad thing to take joy in.
