BEIRUT – The pinnacle of the Arab League says there was no settlement to this point for Syria’s return to the group.
The league’s secretary-general, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, made the remarks on Monday in Lebanon, after assembly President Michel Aoun.
Aboul Gheit says an settlement would result in an Arab international ministers’ assembly on the topic however “till now, I have never felt such a growth or understanding.”
Syria’s membership within the 22-member Arab League was suspended in 2011 after the Syrian authorities’s army crackdown on protesters calling for reforms.
The protests later was an armed insurgency and a full-blown civil warfare, now in its eight yr.
Syrian President Bashar Assad is essentially seen as having gained the warfare, partially due to essential political and army backing from Russia and Iran.
