“President Bashar al-Assad will lead the Syrian delegation to the Arab summit on Friday,” Al Miqdad told reporters from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, where preparatory meetings are taking place ahead of the annual summit of the Arab league.

Official invitation from Saudi Arabia

Al Asad received an official invitation from Saudi Arabia a week ago to participate in the summit, just three days after Damascus was readmitted to the pan-Arab entity after twelve years of suspension.

These points are being defined in a series of preparatory meetings for Friday. This Wednesday is one at the level of Arab Foreign Ministers.

Syria readmitted to the Arab League

On May 7, the foreign ministers of the Arab League countries readmitted Syria as a full member of the organization, so that from the day after this decision it can participate again in all the meetings of the organization.

Syria’s readmission to the Arab League came after a suspension over the Syrian government’s brutal crackdown on anti-government protests in 2011, marking a new step for regional reconciliation.

Compliance with a roadmap

However, the return of Syria to the body is subject to compliance with a road map with the aim of solving “the crisis” in the Arab country, which includes issues such as the return of refugees, the fight against terrorism and drug trafficking. or the expulsion of “illegal foreign” forces from Syrian territory.
