The joint UN Arab league Special Envoy for Syria wants the world to raise the pressure on the country to end the conflict and he says Iran must be involved.

Kofi Annan held a news conference Friday in Geneva where he also said he is trying to gather world ministers together for a contact group meeting next week.

Mr. Annan is also pleading with all sides in the Syrian conflict to abide by his six point peace plan and allow civilians to evacuate and humanitarian access to enter unhindered.
