Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune has hinted at the possibility of Syria’s return to the Arab League during the next Arab summit in March.
“Syria is supposed to be present,” Tebboune told the state television when asked if the next Arab summit in Algeria will see Syria’s return to the Arab League.
He explained that the summit needs to be inclusive and the Arab world unified.
“When we organize an Arab summit, we want it to be an inclusive and a launchpad for the reunification of the fractured Arab world,” Tebboune said. “We are a country that always knits the splintered.”
The majority of the Arab League’s member-states voted on Nov. 12, 2011, to suspend Syria’s membership in response to the regime crimes against Syrian civilians. Algeria was among a few countries that opposed Syria’s suspension.
