U.K. Foreign Secretary William Hague “welcomed the important role that the Arab League is playing” in the efforts of the United Nations Joint Special Envoy Kofi Annan to end the violence in Syria, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said in an e-mailed statement today.
Hague met Arab League Secretary General Nabil al-Araby in London to discuss the Syria crisis, according to the statement.
Hague and al-Araby “agreed on the importance of opposition groups adopting a unified vision for a future democractic Syria,” the statement cited the secretary as saying.
