25 March, 12:10

    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, MARCH 25 - ''Changing the balance of power on the ground'' in Syria by providing more aid to rebels is necessary to get out of the crisis, Saudi heir prince, Salman bin Abdulaziz, said in Kuwait, where he opened the annual Arab League summit, al Arabiya reported Tuesday. The Saudi representative also called for the Syrian coalition of opposition forces to be offered the seat representing Damascus within the Arab League.

    The Syrian regime has been suspended from the Arab League since November 2011 but the seat has not been given to the opposition yet due to reservations expressed by some members, in particular Iraq, Lebanon and Algeria.

    Ahmad Jarba, the head of the opposition National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, addressed the opening session of the summit on Tuesday, asking once again to be allocated the seat. ''Leaving Syria's seat empty means sending a precise signal to Bashar al Assad: kill, kill, the seat is waiting for you once the war is over''. (ANSAmed)
