Arab Mashreq International Road Network

Summary

The Arab Mashreq international Road Network is an international road network between the primarily Arab countries of the Mashriq (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, Kuwait, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Oman and Yemen). In addition, part of the network passes through Israel, which is not a party to the agreement that created it as well as non-Arab parts of the region.

The map of the network

The network is a result of the 2001 Agreement on International Roads in the Arab Mashreq, a United Nations multilateral treaty that entered into force in 2003 and has been ratified by 13 of the 14 (all except Israel) countries that the network serves.[1][2]
