Arab League foreign ministers voted on Sunday to readmit Syria into the organization, after a suspension that lasted over a decade due to the region-wide condemnation of President Bashar Assad's crackdown on the 2011 protests turned civil war.

Ministers held a closed meeting at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo, where the unfolding situation in Sudan was also on the agenda. Some members did not attend the session on Sunday. The most notable absentee was Qatar, which has backed Syria's opposition against Assad. Meanwhile, Syria said the "positive" move serves Arab interests. "The stage ahead requires an effective and constructive Arab approach at the bilateral and collective levels based on dialogue, mutual respect and common interests of the Arab nation," Syria's state news agency SANA quoted the country's Foreign Ministry as saying.
