BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – Iraq’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Al-Hakim stated on Monday that his government is in support of restoring Syria’s membership in the Arab League.

During a press conference following his meeting with his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif in Baghdad, Al-Hakim told reporters that his government supports Syria’s ongoing war against terrorism.

“We discussed solutions to eliminate terrorism in Syria and support the Syrian government, its territorial integrity and sovereignty,” Hakim said on Monday at a joint press conference with his Iranian counterpart Mohammed Javad Zarif, who is on an official visit to Baghdad.

“We also discussed supporting Iraq’s efforts to restore Syria’s (membership) to the Arab League,” he added.

Iraq, along with Lebanon, has been one of the loudest voices in support of restoring Syria’s membership in the Arab League.
