DUBAI - Arab states may ask the UN Security Council to adopt an Arab peace plan aimed at ending a Syrian crackdown on pro-democracy protests but they will not seek military action, the Qatari foreign minister said on Saturday.

Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr al-Thani told a news conference after a ministerial committee meeting in Doha that Syria was delaying in its response to the peace plan presented by Arab states last month.

Arab foreign ministers will discuss asking the UN Security Council to adopt the Arab peace proposal at a meeting in Cairo on Wednesday, he said.
