Cairo, Feb. 13 (ANI): Syria has rejected the Arab League's decision to open communication channels with the opposition and send a joint peacekeeping mission to the chaotic Middle East country.
"The Syrian Arab Republic categorically rejects the decisions of the Arab League," Xinhua quoted Syria's ambassador to Cairo Yusef Ahmed, as saying.
He added that the decisions reflected the hysteria of the League's member nations, after they failed to secure the UN Security Council's intervention in Syria's affairs.
The League also announced the bloc had formally ended its observer mission to Syria, which was suspended last month.
The bloc's members also decided to "ask the UN Security Council to issue a decision on the formation of a joint UN-Arab peacekeeping force to oversee the implementation of a ceasefire."
The Syrian ambassador, who did not attend the meeting, said the West planned to "redistribute the cards in the region, in order to impose a solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict, resulting in the loss of (Arab) rights and land."(ANI)
