The 2008 Arab League summit was held in Damascus on March 29, 2008. The summit was marred by inter-Arab differences, mainly over the political deadlock in Lebanon, with relations between Syria and the Saudi-Egypt coalition reaching an all time low. Saudi Arabia and Egypt snubbed the summit by sending low-level representatives.[1][dead link] Lebanon's majority government boycotted the summit.
