(ECNS) -- As what China pointed out before, Syria’s return to the Arab League is conducive to the strength and unity of Arab states, accelerated development and revitalization of the Arab world and peace and stability in the Middle East. This serves the long-term interests of Arab states, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on Monday.
He noted that from whatever angle, Syria’s return to the Arab League is something to be happy about except for a certain country. But the US unabashedly criticized it and exerted pressure.
The Spokesperson for the US Department of State openly opposed the readmission of Syria into the Arab League and the normalization of relations between US allies and Syria, Wang said. US lawmakers even openly denounced the Arab League. In fact, it is because of the US pressure and sanctions that Syria has suffered 12 years of war with related catastrophic consequences lasting until now.
Syria’s return to the Arab League once again proves that when the shadow of the US shrinks, the light of peace spreads, Wang said, adding that the US and a handful of countries call their way of playing the game “the rules” and regime change in other countries “spring”, and condemn every action that does not serve their selfish hegemonic interests. “This kind of twisted ‘political correctness’ will not get them anywhere anymore.”
“We noted that the Syrian Foreign Ministry emphasized ‘dialogue, mutual respect, and the common interests of Arab countries’ in its latest statement, which reflects the common aspiration of regional countries. We believe that with concerted efforts of all parties, Arab countries will realize solidarity and revitalization,” Wang said.
