DUBAI - Syria's main opposition bloc wants Arab states to
work together to effect an international intervention in Syria similar to the
joint initiative in Libya, Syrian National Council (SNC) head Abdulbaset Sieda
said in an interview published on Wednesday.
"We call on the Arabs to
undertake a clear and serious initiative, like the position they took towards
the Libyan revolution," he said after talks in Doha with Qatari
The Arab League asked the UN Security Council for a no-fly
zone last year to protect civilians in Libya, paving the way for NATO and Arab
allies to help rebels overthrow Muammar Gaddafi.
