RABAT - Syria's leadership was offered a last chance to stop its violent repression of anti-government protests but rejected it, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Tuesday.

"We have given a last opportunity to the Syrian regime but they didn't want to seize it," Davutoglu said in the Moroccan capital. Turkey wants "sanctions with an impact that spares harm to the Syrian people," he said through an interpreter.

Moroccan Foreign Minister Taieb Fassi Fihri said "Syrian colleagues" would be welcome to attend a meeting of Arab League foreign ministers in Rabat on Wednesday, but he did not specify if that meant Syria's foreign minister could attend. The Arab League has voted to suspend Syrian membership.
