Arab League in need of Syria's return, analyst says

Beirut, April 2, IRNA – Arab League should unroll a red carpet for Syria to return as it is the League that needs the credit by getting affiliated to Syria not the other way round, a senior West Asia researcher said.

'Some heads of states that have Syrian people's blood on their hands tried at the Arab League to pretend that Syria is returning to the League,' Abbas Khameyar, analyst and a member of Islamic Thought Foundation said.

The pan-Arab body in 2011 suspended Syrian membership while some other members were globally accused of supporting terrorists group during the war in the country.

The Summit of Arab League convened in Tunisia on Sunday said there is still no consensus on Syria's return. This declaraion was against the backdrop of increasing willingness among Arab states for rapprochement with Syria.

UAE has decided to reopen its embassy in Damascus, with its foreign minister Anwar Gargash having admitted last year that “It was a mistake to kick Syria out of the Arab League'.

Reports say that Saudi Arabia, too, has been preparing for resuming diplomatic relations with Damascus.

It should be noted that it is Syria that would do the honor to the Arab League by rejoining it, Khameyar told Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

The Arab League should unroll the red carpet for the Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and looks forward for his return to the league, he believed.

'The Arab League does not have anything to add to Syrians credibility. In other words, it was the Syrians who fought bravely with terrorism and Takfirism on behalf of the Arab World, and left the battlefield victorious,' he said, adding that the Arab League and the Arab plotters were the losers of the war.

'In fact, it is Syria that should set conditions for its return to the league,' the Lebanon-based researcher said.

After an eight-year fight with terrorism, Syrian forces have now regained the control of most parts from terrorist groups.
