BAGHDAD - Arab foreign ministers met on Wednesday to discuss how to implement a UN-backed peace plan for Syria after its president, Bashar Assad, agreed to the proposal that urges an end to violence but does not demand the Syrian leader step down.

Arab leaders in Baghdad for an Arab League summit were expected to endorse the six-point proposal from special envoy Kofi Annan, which seeks a ceasefire and political dialogue in what Iraq called a "last chance" for Syria.

The proposal by Annan, a UN and Arab League special envoy, is the latest attempt to broker an end to more than a year of violence in Syria after Assad sent troops into cities to try to crush rebels seeking to end his 12-year rule.
