Arab League: Application of Brotherhood terrorist classification subject to the evaluation of each Arab state

Arab League Secretary General Nabil al-Araby said that application of the classification of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group is subject to the evaluation of each state due to the large rift between the international law and its application.
“But we will notify all Arab states,” he said at a press conference on Sunday.
In response to a question about the impact of this matter on relations between the Arab countries, al-Araby said that each country has its own policy. “We cannot dictate to them what to do,” he said, adding that 17 Arab countries have signed the binding Arab Convention Against Terrorism. 
The Egyptian government last week said it had labeled the Brotherhood a terrorist organization following a bombing in Mansoura, that killed 16 people. Though a known terrorist group, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdes, claimed responsibility for the attack, the government has placed blame on the Brotherhood.
