CAIRO, Aug 28 (KUNA) -- The Arab League Council concluded early Sunday its
emergency session on the level of foreign ministers, where they presented a
number of recommendations regarding the situation in Libya and Syria.
The meeting, chaired by Oman, discussed Libya's resumption of its
membership in the league after six-month suspension after the league
recognized the National Transitional Council (NTC) as a legitimate
representative of the North African country.
It also called on the Security Council, and concerned countries, to take
full responsibility towards the Libyan people who go through harsh conditions.
It further urged to immediately unfreeze all Libyan assets and properties
in order to ensure meeting the Libyan people's needs.
The Arab League called upon the United Nations to recognize Libya's
transitional council as one of its members and encouraged the Arab League
General Secretary Dr. Nabeel Al-Arabi to follow up on this matter with his
United Nation counterpart.
Meanwhile, regarding the Syrian situation, the Arab League Council
concluded to send Al-Arabi on an urgent mission to Damascus to relay to the
Syrian leadership the council's initiative to resolve the Syrian situation.
It also expressed deep concern over the fall of thousands of victims due to
the blood shedding in the country.
It finally stressed on the urgency to stop this blood bath before it is too
late in order to ensure a better life, economically, politically and socially
for the Syrian people. (end)
