CAIRO - The US State Department's top human rights official said on Thursday that Washington was keen to work with the Arab League to end bloodshed in Syria and added that a new Arab initiative could go before the UN Security Council soon.

The Arab League agreed on Sunday a new proposal that envisages Syrian President Bashar Assad handing power to a deputy and setting up a unity government as a prelude to early parliamentary and presidential elections.

"We are very mindful and appreciative of the attention that the Syria issue has gotten from the Arab League in recent weeks," Michael Posner told reporters in Cairo.

"We are desirous of working in partnership with them and there is certainly a hope and expectation that we can proceed to the Security Council soon for the issue to be raised."
