King Salman has invited Syria’s President Bashar Al-Assad to attend an upcoming Arab League meeting that will take place on May. 19 in the Kingdom, Saudi Press Agency reported on Wednesday.

The invitation to the meeting was handed over by the Kingdom’s ambassador to Jordan, Naif bin Bandar Al-Sudairi, during a meeting with the president in Damascus.

Al-Sudairi conveyed the greetings of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Al-Assad and their wishes for security and stability for the Syrian government and people.

In return, Al-Assad conveyed his greetings and appreciation to the king and crown prince.

The Arab League restored Syria’s membership into the organization during a meeting in Cairo on Sunday.

Syria’s membership was suspended for brutally cracking down on mass protests against Assad in 2011. Since then, the uprising turned into a civil war that killed nearly a half million people and displaced half of the country’s pre-war population of 23 million.
