The Arab League (Arabic: Ø§Ù„Ø¬Ø§Ù…Ø¹Ø© Ø§Ù„Ø¹Ø±Ø¨ÙŠØ© al-JÄ?miÊ»a al-Ê»Arabiyya), officially called the League of Arab States (Arabic: Ø¬Ø§Ù…Ø¹Ø© Ø§Ù„Ø¯ÙˆÙ„ Ø§Ù„Ø¹Ø±Ø¨ÙŠØ© JÄ?miÊ»at ad-Duwal al-Ê»Arabiyya), is a regional organisation of Arab states in North and Northeast Africa, and Southwest Asia (Middle East). It was formed in Cairo on 22 March 1945 with six members: Egypt, Iraq, Transjordan (renamed Jordan after 1946), Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Syria. Yemen joined as a member on 5 May 1945. The Arab League currently has 22 members and four observers. The main goal of the league is to 'draw closer the relations between member States and co-ordinate collaboration between them, to safeguard their independence and sovereignty, and to consider in a general way the affairs and interests of the Arab countries.'
