The Russian Special Envoy for Syria said in Nur-Sultan on Friday that the Arab League countries have not reinstated Syria because of pressure from the United States.

Alexander Lavrentiev was speaking on the side-lines of the intra-Syrian peace talks in the Kazakh capital when he said the issue was raised during the recent summit of Arab League states in Tunisia in March.

Lavrentiev said that “unfortunately under the U.S. pressure, it is not the secret anymore, it is the fait accompli. Basically, the Arab countries decided not to focus on this issue, the issue of reinstatement.”

“We look at how this distinguished organisation works. It stalls. It happens because there are divisions in the League of the Arab countries, different view on the issues concerning the reinstatement of Syria, its membership in the Arab League countries,” he said.

In addition to blocking Syria’s reinstatement in the Arab League, the U.S. has also severely sanctioned the Levantine country, blocking much needed fuel from reaching millions of people across the country.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, which is Syria’s largest supplier of oil, has been blocked by the transit authorities at the Suez Canal from docking at either the Latakia or Tartous ports.

Was I Assad, I wouldn’t even think about reintegrating the snake-pit named Arab-League… In fact, since Syria has her own language -Syriac-, I’d even start the de-Arabisation of the country as a snub to the Arab-League. I’d even start dismantling mosques and send them back to their original owners in Saudi-Barbaria.
Make the Levant Great Again!

One, Syria speaks Arabic, Two, you can’t ”de-Arabisation” a country as it’s in their culture, food and design and Three it’s majority Muslim with 95% of the population recognised being Muslim and only 3% being Christian and 2% unaffiliated. Good luck dismantling Mosques. You are clearly talking out of your @!*&% and I’m speaking as a twelve year old child.

Poor Arabs are forced to hate and kill each other just to further American and Isreal interest. ..
