The Arab League’s calls for peace without external interference in the Middle East and North Africa are crucial and topical, Russia’s Foreign Ministry stated on Friday. Key issues on the Arab League summit’s agenda were joint efforts by the Arab countries to prevent violence and bloodshed in the region. The League touched upon the situations in Syria, Libya and other countries undergoing democratic reforms.

The Arab League supports the mission of UN envoy in Syria, Kofi Annan and Syria’s integrity, stability, security and the right of Syrians to choose their future.

Arab League leaders called for an end to the violence in Syria but refrained from demanding the resignation of President Bashar al-Assad or foreign intervention.

According to the Arab League’s Secretary-General Nabil Al-Araby, the Syrian people should be free to determine their country’s future.

The statement, which was made at a news conference after the AL summit, was backed by all AL leaders, except the president of Tunisia.

The Syrian representatives did not attend the summit following the suspension of Syria’s membership in the AL.
