Mahmoud Khalifa, the military adviser to the Secretary-General of the Arab League, said the return of Syria to its seat at the League will be close.
According to Sputnik, Khalifa said there are ideas put forward for Syria’s return, stressing: “The return of Syria (to the Arab League) will be very close.”
“Syria’s seat in the Arab League has not been abolished, the seat is frozen until certain circumstances are available inside Syria and within the Arab framework,” he said. He hopes to “stabilize and grow stronger with its presence among our Arab brothers.”
The issue of Syria’s return to its seat in the Arab League has been raised at joint Arab meetings for some time.
The Arab League has suspended Syria’s membership since the beginning of the protests that accompanied the Arab Spring in 2011.
However, some countries have maintained contact with Damascus, albeit on a limited scale. The atmosphere is now witnessing Arab openness toward Syria, especially after Abu Dhabi reopened its embassy in Damascus in 2018.
