Lebanon calls for Syrian reinstatement at Arab League

March 6, 2013 16:32

CAIRO - Lebanon's foreign minister Adnam Mansour called on Wednesday for Syria's suspension from the Arab League to be reversed in order to help find a political solution to the country's civil war.

Damascus was suspended from membership of the Cairo-based League in November 2011, eight months into what began as a popular uprising against President Assad.

"I call for Syria's membership of the Arab League to be unblocked," Mansour told a League ministerial meeting. "Communication with Syria ... is essential for a political solution."
