Arab ministers to discuss Syria crisis on Feb. 5

Arab foreign ministers will meet on Feb. 5 to discuss the Syria crisis, a top Arab League official said on Sunday after the pan-Arab body suspended the work of an observer mission that was sent to check if Damascus was heeding an Arab peace plan. 

League Deputy Secretary-General Ahmed Ben Helli told reporters the ministers meeting to discuss "the latest developments in Syria" would also hold talks on the Palestinian issue. 

A League official had told Reuters on Saturday that the meeting to discuss whether Arab monitors would be permanently withdrawn from Syria would be held in the week starting Feb. 5.
