WASHINGTON - The United States backs the Arab League's latest plan for Syria, but sees challenges in winning UN approval for peacekeepers to halt the Syrian government's violent crackdown on protests, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday.

Clinton discussed Syria with visiting Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, and agreed to discuss further steps at the inaugural meeting of a new "Friends of Syria" contact group in Tunisia on Feb. 24.

"We have heard the call of the Syrian people for help and we are committed to working to allow the entry of medical supplies, of emergency help to reach those who are wounded and dying," Clinton said.
