Nabil Elaraby said Sunday the unprecedented challenges facing Arab countries, including the Islamic State group holding territory in Iraq and Syria, chaos in Libya and turmoil in other part of the regions, has tested the 22-member regional group.

He said the group often disagrees over what to do or uses the pretext of non-interference to avoid accusation of meddling in each other’s affairs, while saying some wouldn’t refuse a Western intervention.
