Moualem told reporters in the Syrian capital that the proposed mission has “pervasive jurisdiction that reaches the level of  violating Syrian sovereignty” and said he would send the Arab League a letter with questions about its role.

The League had previously given Syria three days from Nov. 16 to abide by a deal to withdraw its forces from restive cities, start talks with the opposition and pave the way for a League observer team.
