The Arab League met on November 19, 2017 in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry stated on Tuesday that Syria should take the necessary steps to rejoin the Arab League.

“Syria’s return to the Arab League will depend on decisions adopted by league member-states at the next Arab summit,” Shoukry said at the press conference.

“The situation will remain unchanged if the Syrian government fails to take the necessary steps to maintain security, stability and sovereignty and activate a political solution [to the crisis],” he continued.

The Egyptian FM went on to voice hope that “the situation in Syria will develop in a positive manner”.

“The military conflict in Syria has not yielded any positive results,” Shoukry asserted. “But it has profoundly impacted the Syrian people.”

Shoukry made the comments during a joint press conference with Moroccan counterpart Nasser Bourita, who arrived earlier Tuesday in capital Cairo.

Qué beneficios obtiene Siria al pertenecer a la liga?, si no hay preferible mantenerse fuera.
Lo otro es hacer trabajo político dentro de la liga y denunciar a los países agresores, en este caso las Monarquías que financian terroristas, un ejemplo claro la agresión que sufre el pueblo de Yemen.

I also think Syria, but not only Syria, actually, all Levant and Maghreb countries should pull out too.
Now you’re wrong about Yemen : Houthis started the war by a coup d’état and in this case, UAE and KSA are backing the legitimate president! Iran+Hezbollah are doing the same shït in Yemen Turkey and Qatar are doing in Syria (seems that KSA has cut support since MBS is the de facto ruler of the country)

Absolutely, and Egypt too!
Moreover, considering the havoc the Arab-League contributed to wreak in Syria, was I Assad, I’d even consider to ban the Arab language and seriously reintroduce Syriac-Aramaic.

To Johnny and Daeshbags! Generally you both are correct. Also Dr. Bashar Assad himself claimed in one of his interviews (I think was during 2016) that he is going to push in the new Constitution Syria to be named Syrian Republic (no more Arab in the middle). So, both relax, chill out and everything is going to happen in the right time…

Especially when DNA tests prove that the majority of Syrian population are ethnically speaking… Jews…
Never heard about the kingdom of Aram? Abraham even once was the king of Damascus…

All that would remain is to send all the East European pseudo-Jews back home and end the colonial project of “Israel”. DNA tests show after all… but seriously, you ain’t Assad and only God decides who rules over nations. The Syrian government has well and truly won this war, the rest is just details. I got a good laugh hearing that some senile US Senators “called for the recognition” of the Zionist occupation of Golan – only weeks after the entire UN assembly voted against such a travesty. There will be no Kurdish nation, no “deal of the century” to… Read more »

@NZLex, You missed that the Ashkenazim whom You called “East European pseudo-Jews” have become a minority in Israel. The so called Arab Jews (Jews living in or originating from the Arab world) are the vast majority. The Muslim countries forced them out after 1948 and they resettled in Israel. There is a Kurdish nation – You mixed up the words: nation and state. The entire UN assembly’s vote is worth less than the veto of one permanent member in the UNSC. When the US-NATO block goes defunct, UNRWA lacks funds to feed the Palestinians.

And it’s high time our taxes stop funding the Palis and if they start again terrorist actions on us, make IDF look weak by the number of air strikes they will get!
