Halki Calls for Greater Arab Solidarity to Combat Extremism

Prime Minister Wael al-Halki on Monday called on the Arab community to help in reviving the pan-Arab identity while strengthening society against the threat of extremist mentality.

During a meeting with a Jordanian delegation of lawyers, activists and political representatives, Halki stressed the important role of Arab organizations and political forces that are committed to the Arab world’s issues in bolstering society against radicalization and reviving a sense of nationalism and Arab solidarity.

Halki stressed the need for Arab lawyers to help in prosecuting all those who contributed to the global terrorist war waged against Syria and participated in looting and destroying its resources, hailing the supportive stances of Jordanian associations towards Syria and its people.

Syria, he said, has been able to confront the global terror war thanks to the cohesion of its people, army, and leadership and to the support provided by its friends, underlining the challenges facing Syria’s economy and the government’s efforts to provide for citizens’ needs.

In turn, Assistant Secretary General of the Arab Lawyers Union Samih Khreis said that Syria is facing the US-Israeli project in the region, and by doing so it is defending the Arab identity, voicing confidence that Syrian people will achieve victory.
