Syria's return to Arab League requires Arab consensus: UAE minister

CAIRO (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates’ minister of state for foreign affairs, Anwar Gargash, told Al Arabiya TV on Thursday that Syria's return to Arab league, which was suspended seven years ago, required Arab consensus.

An Arab diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters last week he believed a majority wanted Syria to be readmitted - with only three or four states expected to oppose this.
