"
He added that "the other group wants to allow the meeting of permanent delegates to restore the work of Arab embassies and Arab ambassadors in Damascus, the return of Syrian ambassadors to the Arab countries and the postponement of the decision to return the Syria at its headquarters in the Arab League at the next summit, and this decision by Arab leaders next March ".
The sources said: "It has not yet settled everyone on a unitary position so far, but according to all sources, it has confirmed that the return of Syria to its headquarters in the Arab League is a matter of time".
