Arab League Head To Visit Restive Syria

CAIRO, Aug. 28 (UPI) — The Arab League says it will send its secretary-general to Syria to find a way to end the ongoing rebellion by anti-government protesters.

Foreign ministers from the region held an emergency meeting of the Arab League Council in Cairo Sunday and voted to dispatch Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby to Damascus to meet with government leaders.

The Middle East North Africa Financial Network said the ministers decided to step in because they consider Syria to be vital to the overall stability of the Middle East.

The statement said Araby would present the government with a plan to defuse the crisis, although it did not lay out any details of the proposal, al-Masry al-Youm reported. The statement said, however, the government should do more to address the grievances of protesters.

The newspaper said the plan was approved over the objections of Syria’s representative, who called on the Arab League to fully support President Bashar Assad.
