DOHA - The Arab League (AL) plans to take the Arab peace proposal on Syria to the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday, Qatari Foreign minister said Saturday.
"If the Syrian crisis is not solved within two weeks, the matter would be beyond the control of Arab countries," Qatari Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al- Thani, who also chairs an Arab ministerial committee in charge of handling the Syrian crisis, said at a televised press conference.
The AL would refer the peace proposal to the Security Council on Wednesday, but would not seek any military action against Syria, Sheikh Hamad said.
The pan-Arab body urges Syria to accept the proposal in the next four days.
