Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, Nasser Kanaani, congratulated Syria on its return to the Arab League and expressed support for the settlement of differences among Muslim countries. The decision to reinstate Syria’s membership came after a meeting of top regional diplomats from Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Syria in Jordan last week, and was made in advance of the Arab League Summit in Saudi Arabia on May 19. Syria has called on Arab states to show mutual respect following the vote. The move towards normalization of ties with Damascus in recent weeks is seen as a positive step towards regional stability and reduced foreign interference.
