CAIRO, Feb. 12 (Xinhua) -- The Arab League (AL) on Sunday called on the United Nations to form joint UN-AL peacekeeping forces for Syria to stop all violence against civilians in the turmoil-hit country, said a resolution by Arab foreign ministers in Egypt's capital Cairo.

According to the resolution, the pan-Arab body asked its members to stop all diplomatic cooperation with the regime of Syria in international conferences and institutions.

It called on the Syrian military forces to withdraw from towns and villages and bear all responsibilities to protest civilians.

The resolution asserted the procedures for an economic embargo over Syria and for an end to trade dealings with the Syrian regime.
