Cairo:Arab League chief unhappy about Syria crisis

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Speaking to reporters in Cairo on Thursday, Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Arabi expressed concern about the latest developments in Syria.

“What we currently witness in the country is no doubt a revolution,” al-Arabi said referring to a recent report by Arab League observers on Syria.

He also said that the Syrian opposition may play a “useful role in halting the violence.”

Al-Arabi added that a repeat of the Libyan scenario in Syria is unlikely because “there is no oil in Syria and consequently no-one will cover expenses for the international interference.”

He called the imposition of international sanctions one of the ways to prevent the Assad regime from cracking down on Syrian people.
