BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – Iraq, Lebanon, and Jordan are allegedly preparing a tripartite proposal to lift the suspension on Syria’s membership in the Arab League, the Middle East Monitor reported on Tuesday.
Citing Lebanese sources, the Middle East Monitor alleged that the proposal will be presented tomorrow at the Arab League Economic Summit in Beirut.
The report says that Egypt will also be supporting the proposal.
Several Lebanese politicians from the March 14th bloc have accused Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil of using this summit to restore Syria’s role in the Arab League.
Among those making these claims are members of the rival Lebanese Forces Party, who oppose normalizing relations with the Syrian government.
Syria was formally suspended from the Arab League in 2012 after a joint Qatari-Saudi resolution was passed regarding their membership in the regional organization.
