Bloomberg said that the Arab League’s decision to ignore US reservations regarding Syria’s restoration of its seat reflects the decline of the United States’ influence in the region.

Bloomberg’s report indicated a growing willingness among allies to forge their own political path and build stronger strategic relations with US opponents.

Hours ago, the US State Department stated that Washington understands that the partners are seeking direct contact with the Syrian president to put more pressure towards a solution to the Syrian crisis.

What happened may also be a victory for Iran and Russia, which have supported Syrian President Bashar al Assad militarily, but they need regional assistance to rehabilitate him diplomatically, and ultimately help rebuild a war-torn country that has displaced millions.

The foreign ministers of the Arab countries agreed, in their extraordinary meeting, to return Syria to its seat in the Arab League.

Jamal Rushdi, the official spokesman for the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, said, “The Arab League has adopted the decision to return Syria to its seat”.

In its closing statement issued on Sunday, the League of Arab States Council confirmed the resumption of the participation of Syrian government delegations in its meetings, 12 years after they suspended their membership.

The statement announced that it had been decided to resume the participation of delegations of the government of the Syrian Arab Republic in the meetings of the Council of the League of Arab States, and all its affiliated organizations and agencies, explaining that the decision takes effect as of May 7.

After the return to the Arab League, the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed, “the importance of dialogue and joint action to confront the challenges facing Arab countries,” adding that “the next stage requires an effective Arab approach, on the bilateral and collective levels, on the basis of dialogue, respect and common interests”.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry added, in a statement, that “Syria, a founding member of the League of Arab States, renews its continuous position on the need to strengthen joint Arab action and cooperation”.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry pointed out that Damascus had received with interest the League Council’s decision to resume the participation of Syrian government delegations in the meetings of the Council and its affiliated bodies.

On Saturday, the official spokesman for the Secretary-General of the Arab League revealed that the decision to return Syria to the League of Arab States may be taken on Sunday, indicating that the meeting is in the issue of lifting the suspension of Syria’s seat in the League, and its participation in the next Arab summit scheduled to be held in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, On the 19th of May.
