The Arab League will postpone an upcoming meeting to Wednesday to discuss Syria’s readmission to the bloc, a source told Russia Today on Sunday.
The meeting of permanent representatives will consider a number of issues, among them the restoration of Syria's membership in the Arab League, which has been frozen since November 2011.
"The Arab League is working on a draft resolution to restore Syria’s membership. It might be put up for debate at the Economic and Social Summit in Beirut," the source said.
This follows the UAE’s reopening of its embassy in the capital city after a six-year break, with Bahrain soon to follow.
For Syria to be reinstated, the Arab League must reach a consensus.
