UK Foreign Secretary William Hague on Monday said discussions on sending a joint United Nations-Arab League peacekeeping mission to Syria must take place "urgently," the Press Association reported.

But no such mission can take place, Hague added, until Syrian President Bashar Assad ends the violence being perpetrated by his military, the PA reported. "President Assad must be in no doubt of the determination of his neighbors and the international community to bring an end to the violence in Syria," he said.Saying the UK would play a "very active part" in a new international working group on Syria, the UK foreign secretary praised recent actions by the Arab League. "The Arab League could not have sent a clearer message to Syria than the one it sent yesterday," adding that he plans to work closely with the League in the near future.
