Arabs to ask UN to review policy on Syria
Cairo: The Arab League says it will ask the UN Security Council to "review" its policy on Syria if the regime there fails to fully and immediately honour its commitment to a ceasefire.
A statement by Arab Foreign Ministers meeting at the League`s Cairo headquarters on Thursday said the Damascus regime was negotiating while simultaneously "killing its own people”.
The ministers say they are asking Morocco, currently a member of the 15-nation Security Council, to convey the League`s request when the world body meets on Syria on May 05.
They also have called on Syria`s regime, which is facing a 13-month-old uprising, to give UN monitors already on the ground unrestricted access and to refrain from punishing civilians who contact them or provide information.
