Cairo: Arab League foreign ministers meeting here have called on the Syrian opposition to attend the Geneva-II conference on restoring peace in the troubled country and form a delegation as soon as possible.

The ministers said Sunday that the League supports the Syrian opposition`s stance of asking for necessary international guarantees for participating in the conference, reports Xinhua.

Syrian National Coalition chief Ahmed Al-Jarba said that the opposition decided against attending the Geneva talks unless there is a successful transfer of power within a specific timeframe.

Al-Jarba also urged the League to take a clear stance on supplying the opposition with weapons and guarantee that these would not fall in the wrong hands.

Arab League chief Nabil Al-Arabi said at the foreign ministers` meeting that bloodshed in Syria could no longer be tolerated.
