RABAT - Arab League foreign ministers on Wednesday gave Syria's government three days to agree to end its crackdown on protesters and allow in teams of observers.

The foreign ministers, meeting in the Moroccan capital, did not say what would happen if Damascus failed to comply.

Asked if the proposal was a last-ditch attempt at diplomacy, Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim al-Thani told reporters: "We do not want to talk about a last-ditch attempt because I do not want this to sound like a warning."

"What I can say is that we are close to the end of the road as far as the (Arab League's) efforts on this front are concerned," he said.
