Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri yesterday called on the Syrian regime to undertake “measures” on the political level to settle the civil war in the country in order to be reinstated in to the Arab League.
Speaking at a joint press conference with his Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bureita Shukri, Shukri said the decision to return Syria to the Arab League is made by “the Council of the Arab League, and then approved at the highest level”.
He added that “the Syrian government’s failure to take the necessary measures to maintain security, stability and sovereignty and activate the political path to get out of the crisis will keep things as they are.”
The Egyptian minister expressed hope that “things will develop positively in Syria,” stressing that “the military conflict in Syria did not bring any positive results but had a great impact on the Syrian people.”
The Arab League is due to discuss Syria’s membership during a meeting today. It had suspended Damascus in 2011 as a result of the regime’s brutal crackdown on peaceful activists.
