The Committee of Arab Affairs at the Egyptian parliament called on the Syrian Arab Republic to restore its seat at the Arab League, describing the current situation as totally ‘unacceptable’.

The Committee states that the strategic ties and mutual struggle shared by both countries make it necessary to positively intervene in the Syrian case.

On the recently-held peace talks in Astana between the Syrian government and opposition, the CAF underlined the need to maintain the country’s institution, unity and sovereignty.

It also put a special emphasis on the fact that only Syrians have the right to decide the future of their country and form of government through democratic and free elections, taking into account the public interest of the country, expressing concerns about what it called ‘attempts to obliterate the Arabic and Islamic character of Syria through the draft constitution laid down by Russia.

So is Egypt… Many countries should consider much more their real roots instead of so much sticking to the culture and religion of those who invaded them 1300-1400 years ago. Damascus has a near 5000 years history, it’s one of the oldest cities on Earth! So has Egypt, same values for Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Jordan. All should simply quit the Arab League as they’re not of Arab culture at… Read more »

There should be no place for the “Arab League” or any other political organisation based on ethnicity and exclusion.
