US State Department Deputy Spokesman Vedant Patel said the United States does not believe Syria deserves a return to the Arab League.
He added: “We do not believe that Syria deserves re-admission to the Arab League at this time.”
He added that the US would not normalize relations with Damascus in the absence of “real progress” in resolving the crisis in the country.
He said the United States was reassuring regional partners working with the Syrian government that their engagement should be focused on improving humanitarian conditions in the country.
It is worth noting that the foreign ministers of the six member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council, in addition to Egypt, Iraq and Jordan, met in Jeddah to discuss the possibility of Syria returning to the Arab League after its membership was suspended in 2011.
