Council of the Arab League decided to return Syria to the organization
The Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the member countries of the League of Arab States (LAS) decided to return Syria to the regional organization. This was announced on Sunday, May 7, by the official representative of the Iraqi Foreign Ministry, Ahmed al-Sahaf.
“The Council of Arab Foreign Ministers has decided to return to Syria its place in the Arab League,” he said. About it writes TASS with reference to the Iraqi media.
After the outbreak of the armed conflict in Syria in 2011, the country’s membership in the Arab League was frozen. After the February 6 earthquake, most of the Arab states moved closer to Damascus and provided significant humanitarian assistance to Syria. Now most of the embassies of the Arab countries have resumed their work in the republic.
The League of Arab States is an international organization that unites the Arab states. Consists of 22 member states. The headquarters is located in Egypt. The organization was founded in 1945.
