Arab League Wants UN To Form Joint Syria Force

Arab League Wants UN To Form Joint Syria Force, The Arab League will call Sunday for the U.N. Security Council to create a joint peacekeeping force for Syria, the latest effort by the regional group to end the 11-month old crisis that has killed more than 5,000 people.
The new effort is spelled out in a draft resolution obtained by The Associated Press and expected to be adopted by League foreign ministers meeting in Cairo. However, Syria is unlikely to accept a joint U.N.-Arab League peacekeeping force.
Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Saud Al-Faisal conveyed the League’s frustration with Syria by telling delegates it was no longer appropriate for the league to stand by and watch the bloodshed in Syria.
“Until when will we remain spectators?” he said. “It is a disgrace for us as Muslims and Arabs to accept” the bloodshed in Syria, he said.
