CAIRO, Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- Syrian opposition in Egypt rejected the Arab League (AL) decision to call all parties in and out Syria to hold national dialogue in the AL headquarters in Cairo, official news agency MENA reported Monday.

In an urgent meeting Sunday, the AL foreign ministers called on the Syrian government and the opposition parties to hold a meeting in the AL headquarters within 15 days.

Considering AL's decision useless, spokesperson for the Syrian opposition in Egypt Mohammed al-Hemsy said "no one has the right to make dialogue with such a regime whose hands were splashed with the innocent Syrians blood."

The AL decision is a sort of gift to the Syrian regime, he added.

According to latest UN figures, some 3,000 people have died since protests began in mid-March in Syria.
