Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby held a press conference on Wednesday, September 19, at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo, where he addressed various issues including the ongoing UN General Assembly meetings, the Syrian crisis and the recent anti-Islam film produced in the United States.

Al-Araby told reporters that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Arab League, the African Union and the European Union are working on reaching an agreement against religious defamation.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby:
“We’re working on it. Thank God, it’s not only the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League but also the European Union and the African Union showing interest in this issue to put together the measures to start preparing an international convention prohibiting defaming or insulting religions.”

As for the Syrian issue, Al-Araby detailed the mission of the new UN-AL envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi and his recent visit to Damascus where he met with President Bashar al-Assad, Syrian officials, opposition members, Syrian Free Army members and representatives of civil society organizations.

He added that the Egyptian and the Arab League positions are clear on the issue, demanding Al-Assad to step down.

SOUNDBITE 2 (English) – Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby:
“I stick to what the resolution of the Arab League pronounced, that what is needed is the beginning of a transitional period which will entail of course a new government – a coalition government or whatever it is. And also the Arab resolution said or issued an appeal to President Assad to step down.”

Al-Araby stressed in the press conference he held before heading to New York to take part in the UN General Assembly meetings, that the reason for the failure in dealing with the Syrian crisis is the international system established since 1945 and the veto used by China and Russia.

He clarified that the Arab League and the United Nations were unable to resolve the Syrian crisis due to the non-cooperation of Al-Assad and his regime and their rejection of all previous initiatives over the past few months.

Translation:

"Although they call it civilian rulling, it's still a military ruling as it used to be. Provisions are the same, and the practices also, because the whole process is governed by the will of power, not the will of law or fair procedures.
This is why we were not surprised, but we hope that the authority will provide something to the international community justification for this power."
