EU cool on Arab League summit over Syria, Saudi concerns

A month after European Union leaders prepared for a summit with Arab League nations, enthusiasm for the Feb. 24-25 meeting in Egypt is waning

The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity because final preparations for the summit in the resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh will be made by ministers on Feb. 4.

The summit was announced with great fanfare last year as the EU sought Egypt's help to stop migrants leaving Africa for Europe.
