Arab League backs Annan Syria plan - Middle East - Al Jazeera English

Arab League foreign ministers meeting in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, have reached a draft resolution on Syria, which calls for action on a UN-backed peace plan formulated by former UN chief Kofi Annan.

Speaking at the summit on Wednesday, Hoshyar Zebari, the Iraqi foreign minister, said "the Syrian crisis is not exclusively an Arab one, it affects the entire international community".

Speaking after the first day of the meeting, Zebari said the Syrian crisis figured high on the envoys' agenda.

He called for a "unified vision" when it came to resolving regional issues.

On Tuesday, Annan, the joint UN-Arab League envoy for Syria, said President Bashar al-Assad had agreed to the six-point peace proposal that urges an end to violence in that country.
