The Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa al-Kazemi, expressed his support for Syria’s return to the Arab League.
His call came during a meeting between Kazemi and the visiting Secretary-General of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, in which they discussed the latest developments on the regional and international arenas and the various current Arab issues.
Kazemi affirmed his country’s support for the initiatives to end the conflict in Yemen, support Lebanon to overcome its difficult circumstances, and Syria’s return to the Arab League and encourage internal dialogue in it, according to him.
He added that the Arab League should play an important role in promoting constructive rapprochement and overcoming differences.
On February 23, the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs called for the return of the Bashar al-Assad regime to its seat in the Arab League, with the aim of what it described as achieving the principle of integration in Arab work and coordination.
The Assistant Secretary-General of the Arab League, Ambassador Hossam Zaki, had announced that there was no significant progress regarding the return of Syria, whose seat in the League was suspended several years ago.
