Algerian Minister of State on Syria: Syrians Alone Shall Decide Their Future, AL Stance towards Syria Needs Reconsideration

The Algerian State Minister and the Secretary General of the National Liberation Front Party Abdelaziz Belkhadem on Sunday criticized the Arab League (AL) stance towards what is taking place in Syria, saying that it needs deep reconsideration.

“The Arab League is no longer a league and it is so far from being Arab as its name indicates since it asks the Security Council to interfere against one of its founding members and calls upon the NATO to destroy the resources of Arab countries,” Belkhadem, who is the personal representative of Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, was quoted by the AFP as saying in an interview with an Algerian French-speaking radio station.

He stressed the need for putting an end to what is happening in Syria and for leaving the Syrians decide their future by themselves.

The Algerian Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci, during a meeting with his Spanish counterpart Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo last Wednesday, pointed out that Algeria reserved on the seven point of the Arab League\’s decision issued on January 22nd, which calls for referring the Syrian file to the Security Council.

Medelci expressed hope that the Arab initiative will remain the main reference for resolving the crisis in Syria and the Arab League will stay a mediator between the Syrian authorities and the opposition.
