CAIRO, Feb. 18 (Xinhua) -- The UN General Assembly President Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser arrived in Egypt's capital Cairo on Saturday to discuss the Syrian crisis with Egyptian and Arab League (AL) officials, state media reported.

During the two-day visit, Al-Nasser will meet Egypt's Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr and the AL chief Nabil al-Arabi to discuss the recent developments in Syria, Egyptian official news agency MENA said.

The visit came after the UN General Assembly on Thursday adopted a resolution supporting political transition in Syria, which has been plagued by 11 months of violent anti-government protests.
