AMMAN, Jordan — Regional leaders met in Jordan Monday to debate Syria’s return to the Arab fold and a Jordanian proposal to succeed in a “political answer” to the Syrian battle.

The talks, attended by the highest diplomats of Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Egypt, kicked off with a gathering between Jordanian Overseas Minister Ayman Safadi and Syrian Overseas Minister Faisal Mekdad, adopted by a gathering of all of the ministers.

A Jordanian international ministry spokesman mentioned the assembly got here as a follow-up to talks with the Arab Gulf nations, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt that had been held in Saudi Arabia final month. The spokesman added that these nations aimed to construct on their contacts with the Syrian authorities and focus on a “Jordanian initiative to succeed in a political answer to the Syrian disaster.”

Syria was ostracized by Arab governments over President Bashar Assad’s brutal crackdown on protesters in a 2011 rebellion that descended into civil struggle. Nevertheless, lately, as Assad consolidated management over many of the nation, Syria’s neighbors have begun to take steps towards rapprochement.

The overtures picked up tempo after a lethal Feb. 6 earthquake in Turkey and Syria, and the Chinese language-brokered reestablishment of ties between Saudi Arabia and Iran, which had backed opposing sides within the battle.

In latest weeks, regional heavyweight Saudi Arabia — which as soon as backed Syrian insurgent teams — has reversed its stance on the Assad authorities and is pushing its neighbors to observe swimsuit. Saudi Overseas Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan visited Damascus final month for the primary time because the kingdom lower ties with Syria greater than a decade in the past.

The dominion, which can host a gathering of the Arab League this month, has been coaxing different member states to revive Syria’s membership, though some holdouts stay, chief amongst them Qatar. The Arab League is a confederation of Arab administrations established to advertise cooperation amongst its members.
