In a Feb. 12 story about the meeting of Arab League foreign ministers, The Associated Press misquoted League chief Nabil Elaraby as saying Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov wrote him a letter saying Russia would agree to a joint U.N.-Arab League peacekeeping force in Syria. Elaraby said Lavrov wrote that Russia could agree to a joint U.N.-Arab League observer force.
