BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The U.S. and European Union are attempting to block Syria’s return to the Arab League, a new report said on Monday.

According to a report from Asharq Al-Aswat, “some states stipulated a pause in the process of normalizing relations with Damascus until after the summit.”

Asharq Al-Aswat said that some E.U. states will not accept the upcoming Arab-EU summit in Belgium to be the backbone for a decision on restoring Syria’s membership at the Arab League conference in Tunis.

The report said that some E.U. and U.S. officials have warned some Arab states that helping rebuild Syria could result in sanctions against them.

Furthermore, the E.U is upset over Syria’s recent decision to suspend the residency permits of several officials.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry made the decision to suspend the residency permits in retaliation for the recent sanctions imposed on Damascus by the E.U.
