Tebboune pointed out that Syria's participation remains a subject for discussion between Arab countries, according to SHAM FM.

Algerian President Abdelmajid Tebboune said that the Arab summit, scheduled for early November, will be “successful.” During a meeting with the Algerian News Agency, he stressed that Algeria is seeking to achieve Arab reunification.

Tebboune pointed out that Syria’s participation remains a subject for discussion between Arab countries. Syria is legally considered one of the founding countries of the Arab League, and its presence at the summit would be very normal —  politically, however, some differences remain.

“Our brothers in Syria have confirmed that they will not cause division in the Arab region,” Tebboune said. He stressed that Algeria is doing everything possible to make Damascus’s return to the Arab League possible.

Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra said Syria’s absence from the Arab League “undermines collective Arab action.” He added that Algeria’s position is “clear” on returning Syria’s seat at the Arab League to the regime and allowing it to participate in the upcoming summit.
