GCC ministers to meet on Syria: Omani minister


Foreign ministers from the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) will meet in the Saudi capital later this week to discuss developments in Syria, Oman's foreign minister said on Monday.

"The foreign ministers of the GCC will meet in Riyadh... to debate and exchange views on the situation in Syria," Yussef bin Alawi told AFP.

The meeting will be held on Saturday, ahead of an Arab League ministerial meeting in Cairo, and is expected to focus on "the situation after the failure of the UN" to adopt a Security Council resolution supporting a League plan to end the Syria crisis, Alawi said.

The Arab League is also due to meet in the Egyptian capital over the weekend.
