Arab League Syria
February 13, 2012 by staff
Arab League Syria, The Arab League called Sunday for the U.N. Security Council to create a joint peacekeeping force for Syria and urged Arab states to sever all diplomatic contact with President Bashar Assad’s regime, the League’s latest effort to bring an end to the violence that has killed more than 5,000 people.
Syria immediately rejected the moves, spelled out in a resolution adopted by League foreign ministers meeting in Cairo.
Saudi Foreign Minister Saud Al-Faisal conveyed the 22-nation League’s deep frustration with Syria, telling delegates that it was no longer appropriate to stand by and watch the bloodshed.
“Until when will we remain spectators?” he said. The bloodshed in Syria “is a disgrace for us as Muslims and Arabs to accept.”
Syria’s state news agency said the regime rejected the Arab League decisions, which were taken without a Syrian representative present. Syria’s ambassador to the Arab League, Ahmed Youssef, was quoted as saying that Saudi Arabia and Qatar were “living in a state of hysteria after their last failure at the U.N. Security Council to call for outside interference in Syria’s affairs and to impose sanctions on the Syrian people.”
