Arab League called for emergency meeting on Syria

(DP-News - agencies)

Cairo- The Arab League (AL) committee on Syria will hold an emergency meeting on Thursday ahead of an international peace conference on ending the country's civil war, the AL bloc's deputy leader Ahmed Ben-Hilli said on Sunday.

The foreign ministers of Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Oman, Qatar and Sudan would discuss a US-Russian push for a conference aimed at finding a political solution to the Syria conflict, Ben-Hilli told reporters.



Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates would also join the meeting "to follow up on developments in Syria in light of the US-Russian understanding," he said.



Some reports said that Arab League called an emergency meeting for Thursday following demands from the opposition Syrian National Council (SNC) for it to meet and "stop the massacre in Qusayr".

The international peace conference for Syria is meant to include both rebels and members of the regime -- a difficulty considering some opposition members' refusal to recognize President Bashar al-Assad as a negotiating partner.

The vacant Syrian seat at the Arab League has not been given to the opposition, even though its leader addressed the bloc's last summit, the league's secretary general said earlier.
"The opinion was that if they [opposition] form a government, which they have not done yet, then they can become a representative," Nabil al-Arabi told reporters last Thursday in Dubai.

The Syria regime's membership of the Arab League was suspended in November 2011 after it rejected calls to end violence against protesters and instead pressed a bloody crackdown on dissent.
