Arab foreign ministers will discuss a draft resolution calling on Syria's government to hold talks with the opposition and to end the violence, on the eve of a landmark summit in Baghdad.

The Syria crisis, in which monitors say almost 10,000 people have died in a bloody crackdown on a year-long uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, has loomed large as officials meet ahead of a summit of Arab leaders on Thursday.

The summit will be the first such gathering hosted by Iraq in more than 20 years.

The draft resolution, a copy of which was obtained by AFP, urges the "Syrian government and all opposition factions to deal positively with the envoy by starting serious national dialogue."
