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.
