Arab Ministers Cancel Planned Talks On Syrian Crisis

Arab League foreign ministers on August 12 unexpectedly cancelled a meeting planned for later that day in the Red Sea port of Jeddah.

Ministers had planned to discuss the crisis in Syria and to consider a replacement for former UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan, who resigned earlier this month after failing to see his six-point peace plan implemented.

Arab League Deputy Secretary-General Ahmed Ben Helli told reporters in Cairo that the meeting "has been postponed until a later date."

He declined to provide an explanation for the delay.

I mean, these guys can discuss the issue, of course, but not that their "decisions" would concern anyone: the only ones whose decisions on Syria happen to matter are Bashar, Putin, Hu Jintao and Ahmadinejad. Evrebody else can just take rest.
