Algeria's Brahimi Takes Over As UN Envoy To Syria
Brahimi is known as a strong-willed, independent broker and served as a U.N. envoy in Afghanistan and Iraq. He will resume efforts for a diplomatic solution to Syria’s crisis said Eduardo del Buey, deputy spokesman for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, to The Christian Science Monitor.
“The violence and the suffering in Syria must come to an end. The Secretary-General appreciates Mr. Brahimi’s willingness to bring his considerable talents and experience to this crucial task for which he will need, and rightly expects, the strong, clear and unified support of the international community, including the Security Council,” said del Buey.
