CAIRO - The head of the Arab League said on Thursday he expected a meeting of the five big powers in Geneva later this month to produce "practical mechanisms", not words, to resolve the conflict in Syria.

Describing the situation in Syria as a tragedy, Nabil Elaraby said he was hopeful that the June 30 conference would result in action to deal with the crisis.



"It will include the big five states which have never met together on this issue before. This is very important, because this is the key," Elaraby said speaking to reporters at the League's headquarters in Cairo.

"The second point is that the preparations that are under way now are producing practical mechanisms," he said. He declined to give any further details.
