Carthage — Preparations for the Maghreb Summit scheduled next October in Tunis were discussed at a meeting held Friday in Carthage between Interim President Moncef Marzouki and Arab Maghreb Union Secretary General Habib Ben Yahia.

Mr. Habib Ben Yahia said the regional situation and changes taking place in the Maghreb countries have given the needed impetus to the restructuring of AMU institutions which "now should meet the expectations of peoples of the region," the statement added.
