Syria would let Arab observers stay but no wider mandate

Syria would not object to extending an Arab League mission to monitor its compliance with a peace plan, but will not accept an expansion in the scope of its mandate, an Arab source said on Tuesday.
An Arab League observer team in Syria since late December is expected to report this week that Damascus has failed to fully implement a peace deal plan aimed at ending 10 months of violence.
The mission's mandate expires on Thursday, and Arab League foreign ministers are set to discuss its future when they meet on Jan. 22.
