The Arab League has asked Arabsat and Nilesat to remove the various Syrian TV channels they are carrying. The request was made on June 2 at an extraordinary meeting of the League’s foreign ministers in Qatar.

Syria’s National media Council immediately called the decision as a “flagrant interference in Syrian internal affairs, and unprecedented violation of the media freedom of the Arab nation.”
