CAIRO - The Arab League plans to bring
together Syria's government and opposition groups to seek ways
to end the violence in the country, Qatar's Prime Minister Hamad
bin Jassim al-Thani said on Sunday.
Defying calls for Syria's suspension from the regional body
over a worsening army crackdown on political unrest, the League
decided to form a committee to forge dialogue between the
government and opposition.
"We will call all of the parties of the opposition and
government to hold a dialogue within 15 days," the League's
Secretary General Nabil Elaraby said after an emergency meeting
of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo.
