Arab League: Syria envoy mission makes no progress
Monday - 1/21/2013, 12:12pm EST
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - The Arab League chief says the mission of the international envoy tasked with resolving Syria's crisis has not yielded even a "flicker of hope."
Nabil Elaraby, addressing Monday's opening session of a two-day Arab economic summit in Saudi Arabia, proposed that the gathered heads of state call for an immediate meeting of the U.N. Security Council to adopt a resolution calling for a cease-fire in Syria and establish a monitoring force to ensure compliance with the truce.
Algeria's Lakhdar Brahimi took up his job as international envoy on Syria late last summer, but has made no headway in resolving the conflict there.
