CAIRO, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- The Arab countries were responsible for the bloodshed in Syria, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said Wednesday, calling on those countries to act quickly.
"The Syrian regime still has the chance to stop the violence... We should help the Syrians to avoid civil war and prevent foreign military intervention," Morsi added.
Morsi made the remarks at the opening session of the Arab League's (AL) 138th regular meeting of foreign ministers, which began early Wednesday at the AL headquarters in Egypt's capital of Cairo.
The Egyptian president promised that all Syrian students in Egypt will be treated the same as Egyptians rather than foreigners.
He added that the quartet of contact group for resolving Syrian crisis, initiated by the Egyptian side, will start its work and it welcomes anyone who wants to share the responsibility.
Meanwhile, Morsi stressed the Egyptian support for the Palestinian bid for full membership in the United Nations (UN). " Cairo will continue to be the shelter for the Palestinian people", Morsi said.
He also called on all the Arab countries to support the Iraqi people to build their new state, and to help the Sudanese people to keep peace in their territories.
Morsi urged the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to increase financial support for Somali, and invited Kuwait to join the African-Arab summit in view of its constant support to Africa.
At the end of his speech, Morsi urged all relevant parties to find solution for the Syrian Crisis, affirming that Syrian people' s destiny is in the hands of the Arab countries.
Morsi was the first Egyptian president delivering a speech in the opening session of the AL in recent years.
The meeting is set to discuss the latest developments of the Syrian crisis and the Palestinian bid for the UN membership.
Besides, the meeting will also tackle the situations in Sudan and Somali among others, in addition to searching ways for Arab common cooperation.
