UN-Arab League Special Representative for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi has said the Syrian crisis has become extremely dangerous for the region and the world.
According toIRIB, Brahimi said at a joint news conference in Baghdad with the Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari on Monday ”The Syrian crisis is too serious and dangerous, for not only the Syrian people but also the region and world alike. I think all people who are concerned with the affairs of the region have unanimously agreed that the Syrian crisis is the most serious one in the world and it threatens world peace and stability.”
He further noted, “The international community is too late to offer help to the Syrian people.”
Brahimi arrived in Baghdad on Monday to build support for talks aimed at ending unrest in Syria.
On Sunday, Brahimi met with Arab League Secretary General Nabil al-Arabi in the Egyptian capital Cairo.
Al-Arabi said after meeting with Brahimi “It was decided that the Geneva II conference will be held on November 23,” adding “Preparations are underway for this conference” and that there were still obstacles to holding the meeting.
Brahimi said that the presence of “credible” opposition is necessary for holding the conference. He, however, refused to publicly set a date for the conference, saying, “The date has not been officially set.”
