DOHA, May 7 (Xinhua) -- Qatar said its position regarding normalizing ties with Syria remains unchanged, Qatar's foreign ministry said on Sunday.

In a statement carried by the QNA, Majed bin Mohammad Al Ansari, spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs emphasized that Qatar always seeks to support achieving Arab consensus and will not be an obstacle to that.

Yet he said the official position of Qatar on normalization with "the Syrian regime" is a decision linked primarily to progress in the political solution that fulfills the aspirations of the Syrian people.

Qatar will "work with the Arab brothers in achieving the aspirations of the Syrian people ... and for this consensus to be a motive for the Syrian regime to address the roots of the crisis," he said.

Al Ansari also reaffirmed Qatar's support for all regional and international efforts to find a comprehensive and just solution to the crisis that respects Syria's unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Qatar has recently ruled out all chances of joining the regional reconciliation wave with Syria.

Arab foreign ministers decided in an Arab League extraordinary meeting held in Cairo on Sunday to restore Syria's membership in the league after 12 years of suspension.
