The appeal was made in a letter from League Secretary-General Nabil Elaraby to Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem. He wrote that signing the deal would lead to "a review of all the measures which the League council took."Arab foreign ministers voted to back sweeping economic sanctions on Syria in a meeting in Cairo on Sunday.
