BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:15 P.M.) – Tunisian Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui said in a joint press conference with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov that Syria’s “natural place” is within the Arab League.

“Syria is an Arab state, and its natural place is within the Arab League,” Jhinaoui said during the press conference.

“The question of Syria returning to the Arab League does not depend on Tunisia but on the Arab League,” Jhinaoui continued.

“The foreign ministers (of member states) will decide on this subject,” adding that “what interests us is Syria’s stability and security.”

Syria’s membership was suspended by the Arab League in November 2011 after several states accused Damascus of killing civilians.

Tunisia is Maghreb, not Arabia. Native language is Tamazight and you’ll actually find more Tunisians speaking French than Arab…
Tunisia has even less to do in the Arab League than Syria, especially since Arab-League has many time backstabbed its members.
