Iraq campaigns for Syria’s membership in Arab League to be restored

Iraq calls for Syria’s reinstatement in the Arab League arguing that the move would achieve the principle of integration in Arab work and coordination, reports say.
Foreign minister Fuad Hussein made the call during a meeting with Gulf officials, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) reports citing Russia Today.
The Arab League in 2011 froze Syria’s membership following state crackdown protests. Syria from then slid in civil war.

Damascus has so far thawed ties with UAE and Bahrain.
