DUBAI - Arabs will not agree to foreign military intervention in Syria, Omani Foreign Minister Yousef bin Alawi said in an interview broadcast on Friday, stressing that the only way to end the crisis was through an Arab League peace plan.

Earlier the Arab League chief said he and the Qatari prime minister would present a peace plan to end Syria's crackdown on months of anti-government protests to ambassadors at the UN Security Council in New York early next week.

"The Arab League will not allow foreign military intervention in Syria. This is non-negotiable," Bin Alawi told Al Arabiya television.

"The Arab League is the only channel that can convince both sides to end this crisis based on a solution they both agree on... The aim of the Arab League is to get Syria out of this crisis through an Arab plan and mechanism."
