Stresses to Arabi Importance of Not Being Misled by Media Campaigns against Syria
Syrian President Bashar Assad urged on Saturday Arab League Secretary General Nabil al-Arabi against falling victim to misleading campaigns aimed at creating incitement against Syria, reported the official Syrian news agency SANA.
Al-Arabi affirmed that the Arab League and Arab countries are committed to Syria's security and stability, it added.
He said that the Arab League rejects all forms of foreign interference in Syrian internal affairs and it is seeking to overcome this current stage the country is going through.
He stressed that the Arab League will never be employed for passing a resolution against any Arab country.
The two sides also agreed upon a number of practical steps for speeding up the reform process in Syria, reported SANA.
For his part, Assad emphasized the importance of not being misled by media misdirection and incitement campaigns targeting Syria, saying: “The falsification of facts that is taking place is an attempt to tarnish the image of Syria and destabilize its security and stability.”
In July, Assad had discussed with al-Arabi the changes in the Arab world and the need to unite Arab efforts within the framework of the Arab League to resolve pending issues, particularly the Palestinian cause.
