BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:25 P.M.) – French President Emmanuel Macron’s pressure on his Egyptian counterpart Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi apparently worked as the latter’s government will not be supporting Syria’s return to the Arab League, Al-Hayat reported on Monday.

Citing Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri, Al-Hayat reported that the North African nation shares the same position as France’s Macron on Syria’s return to the Arab League.

This is a complete 180 from Egypt’s previous remarks that encouraged Syria to seek admittance into the Arab League after having their membership suspended in late 2011.

The European Union and U.S. have been pressuring Arab nations to refrain from restoring ties with Syria as a recent move by Damascus to suspend all residency visas to E.U. officials infuriated them.

Macron should sort his own country out before interfering everywhere from Caracas to Damascus.

There is nothing to sort here for him, actually, the country would do it as good as always even if there was no government… and the country is not “his”, it belongs to the French people whch, actually, can’t be and doesn’t needs to be “governed”

Primero, alguien me puede decir: ¿cuánto de aprobación tiene de parte de sus ciudadanos Macrón?.
Ahora como vivimos en un mundo globalizado, por tanto también la dictadura es globalizado, los países poderosos dictan lo que tienen que hacer los países pobres.

Macron will do just like the others : end his 5 years as prez then be replaced. Who cares?
Err, maybe should you learn about history : not so long ago, the countries you’re speaking about, were near all colonies and had no other choice to either side with the Yankees or with the Soviets…
Few could afford to be unaligned…
Now the world has grown more and more multipolar, things have became more complicated too…

Egito não faz parte da liga árabe e sim da liga francesa. Como pode um árabe se sujeitar ficar contra outro só para agradar os de fora que com certeza os rejeitam.

Frankly, was I Assad, I wouldn’t be into re-entering the snakes’ pit named Arab-League, never ever! I’d consider joining the CSTO and BRICS.
I’d even reinstall Syriac as main language and Kurdish as #2 while throwing Arabic language under the bus as a symbolic “FÜCK OFF” to A.L. and Turkey.
