CAIRO: Arab foreign ministers will meet for two days starting on March 10 in Cairo to discuss developments in Syria and prepare for the Arab League summit in Iraq next month, a league source said.

The ministers will discuss Damascus’ failure to implement the league’s resolutions of bringing an end to its crackdown on a popular revolt against President Bashar Al-Assad’s rule.

The Arab League has called on Assad to withdraw the army from cities, release prisoners and allow human rights groups into Syria as part of its peace plan.

“The secretary-general will present to the ministers a detailed report on the situation in Syria,” the source said.

The meeting signals the start of Kuwait’s leadership of the league, succeeding Qatar. It will be preceded by a meeting for Arab states representatives on March 7 and 8.

Qatar and Saudi Arabia have been advocating arming Syrian rebels.

Arab leaders are set to meet in Baghdad by the end of March.
