Withdrawal of Foreign Forces
The joint statement called for the immediate withdrawal of all foreign forces from Syria. The ministers emphasized that the presence of foreign forces in Syrian territory posed a threat to regional and international security. They urged all parties involved in the conflict to respect Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
The Arab states called on the international community to provide support for Syria’s reconstruction and for the provision of humanitarian aid to those affected by the conflict. The ministers highlighted the need for the international community to work together to bring an end to the crisis in Syria.
Implications of the Statement
The joint statement by the Arab states is significant as it demonstrates a united front in the call for an end to the conflict in Syria. The statement also highlights the growing concern among Arab states about the presence of foreign forces in the region.
The call for the withdrawal of foreign forces is likely to increase pressure on countries such as the United States and Russia to reconsider their military presence in Syria. However, it remains to be seen whether the joint statement will lead to any concrete action on the ground.
