‘Arab League stance on Syria absurd’ [video]
March 28, 2013
An analyst slams the Arab League (AL) decision to hand the Syrian government’s seat to the foreign-backed opposition describing the move as ‘completely ludicrous, illegitimate and dangerous.’
The comment comes as Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said in an interview that granting Syria’s seat to the so-called Syrian National Coalition (SNC) is the violation of the AL convention, the official Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.
“The name of the League is the Arab League…representatives of the member states are the elected governments which have legitimacy, express and represent their people,” Zebari stated.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Freelance journalist and political analyst, Ala’a Ibrahim in Damascus to further discuss the issue.
