(Worthy News) – Syrian President Bashar Assad arrived on Thursday in Saudi Arabia to attend a regional summit, his first visit to the oil-rich kingdom since Syria’s conflict began in 2011, Syrian state media said.
Assad’s attendance at the Arab League summit, which starts Friday, is expected to seal Syria‘s return to the Arab fold following a 12-year suspension and open a new chapter of relations after more than a decade of tensions.
The 22-member league, which is convening in the Saudi city of Jeddah, recently reinstated Syria and is now poised to welcome Assad, a long-time regional pariah, back into its ranks. The Syrian president was officially invited to attend the summit last week. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
