    Background: AT AN EMERGENCY SESSION IN CAIRO OCT 28, THE ARAB LEAGUE COUNCIL APPROVED THE RE-ADMISSION OF SYRIA TO MEMBERSHIP OF THE LEAGUE AS A SEPARATE STATE.

    SYRIA, A FOUNDER MEMBER OF THE ARAB LEAGUE, FORMALLY APPLIED FOR MEMBERSHIP AFTER BREAKING AWAY FROM THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC ONE MONTH AGO. A SPOKESMAN SAID NO OBJECTION WAS OFFERED WHEN HER APPLICATION WAS RAISED BEFORE THE COUNCIL. SYRIA BECOMES THE 12TH MEMBER OF THE LEAGUE.

    THE COUNCIL ALSO DECIDED THAT THE UAR REQUEST FOR A LEAGUE INVESTIGATION COMMITTEE TO BE FORMED TO EXAMINE SYRIA'S FINANCES WOULD BE REFERRED TO MR ABDEL KHALIO HASSOUNA, THE LEAGUE SECRETARY-GENERAL.

    BUT ON OCT 29, MR GAMAL FARRA, THE SYRIAN REPRESENTATIVE OF THE ARAB LEAGUE TOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE THAT THE INVESTIGATION COMMITTEE ASKED FOR BY THE UAR WOULD NOT BE FORMED.
