Arab league hails Russia-Syria chemical offer

The Arab League chief has expressed support for Russia's proposal to put Syria's chemical weapons under international control.

Nabil Elaraby told reporters on Tuesday that the Arab League has been always in favor of a "political resolution."

The Arab League has been witnessing a public damage due to its controversial stances toward the crisis in Syria.

The body has been providing strong political support to the opposition in Syria which has turned to an armed group mixed with terrorist and al-Qaeda-linked militants that have been leading one of the most violent insurgencies the Middle East has witnessed.

The league members were also authorized to provide military support to the anti-Syria militants.

Following US accusations against Syrian government on an alleged chemical attack in Syria, the Arab League was also quick to echo Washington blames.

However the US is facing widespread opposition among the public for its plans to bomb Syria over the chemical incident which the Syrian government insists was a false-flag operation by US-backed opposition to open the way for official foreign military intervention.
