Negotiations remain a better option for Syrian conflict, says UN-Arab League envoy

Listen /

Lakhdar Brahimi

It's almost two years that the crisis in Syria continues, in what started as protests and evolved into an armed confrontation between the government and opposition fighters.

The United Nations estimates that more than 60,000 people have been killed in the ongoing violence.

Veteran diplomat Lakhdar Brahimi, the Joint Special Representative of the United Nations and the Arab League, is trying to help resolve the conflict through negotiations.

Mr. Brahimi tells Damien Bonelli of the UN News Centre that the government and the opposition still have different views of what the conflict is all about.
