Gaye appeals for shift from confrontation to dialogue in SyriaListen /
The Syrian government and the armed opposition have been once again urged to stop fighting and start a dialogue.
The call has come from Lieutenant General Babacar Gaye, the head of the UN Supervision Mission (UNSMIS) whose mandate ends in six days.
Speaking in the Syrian capital, Damascus on Monday, Lieutenant General Gaye vowed to continue until the last day of his mandate to urge the parties to end violence.
"Is it the use of heavy weapons? Is it the displaced persons? All these demonstrations of violence are something we should condemn because they are the demonstration of a mindset, the mindset of a military logic. And we are again appealing for this mindset to shift to a mindset of dialogue." (Duration:25")
