Syrian National Council denies al-Qaradawi mediation request for Syrians 

WAM Dubai, March 11th, 2012
The Syrian National Council has denied media reports that it has asked Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi to mediate on the issue of several Syrians whose residence visas in the UAE have been cancelled. In a statement aired on Al Arabiya News Channel, the Council said that it had not asked for such an intervention, adding that it needed no mediators to communicate with the UAE, since it enjoyed close relations based on cooperation and fraternal understanding.

Also today, the Agence France Presse news agency reported that Dr. Anwar Mohammed Gargash, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, had yesterday asked the Egyptian Foreign Minister, Mohamed Kamel Amr, to explain the statements about the UAE made recently by the spokesman for Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood.
