Arab League (AL) Secretary General Nabil al-Arabi has rejected foreign interference in the internal affairs of Syria, amid Western threats against Damascus, Press TV reports.
During a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Saturday, the AL chief also voiced the organization’s commitment to helping Syria resolve the ongoing unrest in the Middle Eastern country.
Last week, the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) praised measures taken by Syrian authorities to defuse the unrest in the country and protect civilians.
Jakob Kellenberger praised Syrian authorities for granting ICRC access to the Damascus central prison and areas of unrest.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March, with demonstrations being held both against and in support of President Bashar Assad’s government.
According to the Syrian government, unknown gangs are responsible for the death of many civilians and are the driving factor behind the recent unrest in the country.
Since the beginning of the unrest in Syria, Washington and the European Union have imposed severe sanctions on Damascus over alleged violence against anti-government protesters.
Washington and EU are now trying hard to expand their sanctions against Syria, targeting the oil sector. Most of Syria’s oil exports go to Europe.
Syria, however, has vehemently denied reports of violence against protesters, saying the US-led sanctions were part of a US effort to impose its policies in the region.
