CAIRO - The head of the Arab League has asked to meet the United Nations secretary general to seek the UN Security Council's support for its latest plan to resolve the crisis in Syria, the League said in a statement on Tuesday.

It said Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby and Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani, who heads the League's committee on Syria, sent a joint letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon giving details of the plan for a political solution to end the violence.

The letter asks for a "joint meeting between them in the UN headquarters to inform the Security Council about developments and obtain the support of the Council for this plan," the statement added.
