NEWS DESK- The Arab foreign ministers decided in an emergency meeting held in Cairo in November 13, 2011 to suspend Syria's membership in the League of Arab States starting from November 16, 2011 till the Syrian government would be committed to implement the provisions of the Arab League and would not be engaged in murder and massacres against the civilians.

The Iraqi deputy Jassem Mohammad Jaafar told the Iraqi Information Agency, “Iraq, Egypt, Algeria and Tunisia strongly support the return of Syria to its normal state, and the re-establishment of its membership in the Arab League.”

Jaafar added, “Egypt is the most prominent player because it is a powerful ally with Russia, and it administratively controls the Arab League which makes its support to the file very positive.”

Jaafar stressed that Iraq supports these trends through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to link the stability of the situations on the border with the return of Syria to its normal state, adding that these countries do not care about whether Bashar al-Assad would stay or not as the stability of Syria would be in favor of the Middle East and the Arab area.
