Speaker of Jordanian House of Representatives Abdul Karim Al-Daghmi said Thursday it is time for Syria to return to the Arab League.
In a press conference on the sidelines of a session of the Arab Parliament in Amman, Al-Daghmi Syria to be fully reinstated to the Arab League when Algeria hosts the next Arab summit in March.
“We, as the Arab Parliament, must put pressure on our governments and ask our leaders to green-light Syria’s return to the Arab League when next summit convenes in Algeria, and to allow its delegation to participate in the Arab Parliament sessions as well,” the Jordanian speaker said, as quoted by Press TV.
“It is now high time for Syria to return to its Arab origins and rejoin the Arab League.”
“Today, we must build on victories achieved by our brethren in Syria and Iraq over terrorist groups; step up our efforts in support of the unity, security and stability of our nations as well as the territorial integrity of our countries; and reject all forms of interference,” Daghmi pointed out.
On October 3, Jordan’s King Abdullah II received a call from Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, the first conversation between the two leaders after a decade of strained ties.
Last week, Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune has called for restoration of Syria’s membership in the Arab League, stating that Arab nations would not be able to reunify and resolve their differences in case Damascus is excluded from the regional organization.
The Arab League suspended Syria’s membership in November 2011, months after the foreign-backed war erupted in March.
Syria was one of the six founding members of the Arab League in 1945.
