Cairo - Syria on Sunday "categorically" rejected the decision by Arab foreign ministers to back the Syrian opposition and call for a joint UN-Arab peacekeeping mission, the Syrian ambassador to Cairo said.

"The Syrian Arab Republic categorically rejects the decisions of the Arab League" which he said "reflects the hysteria of these governments" after failing to get foreign intervention at the UN Security Council, Yusef Ahmed said in a statement.

    This should read "Assad Categorically Rejects League Plan". Many Syrians, possibly most support it. The distinction between the Assad regime and Syria is important and will become bigger as time and events unfold.
