Jordan Confirms Syria Not Invited to Arab Summit

AMMAN – The Jordanian foreign minister confirmed on Sunday that Syria won’t attend the Arab summit scheduled to take place in Amman on March 29, because Damascus’ seat at the Arab League has been suspended.

“There will be no invitation to Syria to attend the summit,” Ayman Safadi said during a joint press conference with Arab League Secretary General, Ahmad Abul Gheit, currently visiting Amman to discuss summit preparations.

“As a host state, we must adhere to the resolutions of the Arab League, which has decided not to invite Damascus,” Safadi explained.

Regarding his talks with Abul Gheit, Safadi said “We have reviewed all preparations and taken steps to ensure the summit’s success.”

“We hope the conference will provide an opportunity for in-depth and frank Arab dialogue on how to deal with the issues and crisis currently blighting the region,” he added.

On his part, Abul Gheit said that he was in Amman to “present a full report to King Abdullah II and relevant Jordanian officials and to agree on common strategies during the summit.”

The Arab League Secretary General met later in the day with King Abdullah II of Jordan, who underscored “the importance of coordinating and uniting of member states attitudes to confront the challenges facing the Arab region.”
