Obama: Syria more isolated after Arab League move

HONOLULU (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Saturday welcomed the Arab League’s decision to suspend Syria’s membership and consider economic sanctions, saying they have further isolated Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“These significant steps expose the increasing diplomatic isolation of a regime that has systematically violated human rights and repressed peaceful protests,” Obama said in a statement released from Honolulu, where he is hosting an Asia-Pacific summit.
