BEIRUT: Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour called Sunday on the Arab League to implement decisions taken in past years against Israel, including a trade, economic and diplomatic boycott of the Jewish state.

“Despite an accumulation and a repetition of decisions and recommendations by the Arab Ministerial Council over several years, Israel is still working to change demography, annexation of [Arab] lands and the building of settlements,” Mansour said in a TV interview. “Israel is still saying no [to peace].

Israel’s aggression against Arab peoples is continuing when it refuses to dismantle settlements,” he added. “As chairman of the Arab Ministerial Council, what I am demanding is the implementation of the decisions and a trade, economic and diplomatic boycott of Israel, especially since they are decisions taken by Arab states,” Mansour said.

On the nearly 2-year bloody conflict in Syria, the minister called for dialogue between the regime and “national opposition” to resolve the crisis. “Eventually, every military action will end up in a political solution,” he said.
