"Isn't it time for Syria to return to the Arab League's haven? Isn't it time to stop the bloodbath, terrorism, and the wave of displacement and asylum? Isn't it time for the return of the displaced and for the Arab-Arab reconciliation? Or should we wait for the green lights from here and there?” he questioned, adding that the Arab light is much needed today as a first response by the League against the Turkish aggression on the Syrian Arab territories, so as not to lose the north of Syria as the Syrian Golan was lost.

 

Bassil noted that they are compelled to adopt a unanimous Arab position to convene an emergency summit of the Arab League, with its entire members, to consecrate reconciliation and draw-up plans to confront what is planned for the region.
