The Organization of Islamic Cooperation welcomed on Monday the Arab League plan that would see a power transfer in Syria, Egyptian daily Al Ahram's news portal reported, after Syria rejected the Arab initiative as meddling.
The organization - a federation of 57 members states with majority or sizable Muslim populations - urged the government in Damascus and opposition groups to work together to implement the Arab initiative in order achieve "security and stability and a united Syria, and to stop the bloodshed," according to the report.
Despite wide support in the Arab and Muslim world of the initiative, Damascus rejected the plan, calling it a "flagrant violation."
