Joint Special Representative Brahimi pushes ahead for second Conference on SyriaListen /
The UN/League of Arab States Joint Special Representative Lakdhar Brahimi will be travelling shortly to the Mideast region, meeting with all of the relevant countries and parties.
Mr. Brahimi says he will be working on the question of the process for what is being termed as a Geneva 2 conference on Syria.
In joint remarks with US Secretary of State John Kerry, both diplomats agreed that there is no military solution in Syria and there will be a political solution if everybody gets together and works for it.
“I'm going to the region immediately after Eid to see as many people as I can to discuss with them, hear from them, what are their preoccupations, what are their ideas, how they can contribute to make this Geneva conference that is coming a success, for the Syria people, for our region, and for the world.” (22″)
Joint Special Representative Lakdhar Brahimi says he looks forward to everybody who can help the Syrians solve their problems to be at the conference.
And he adds that the Syrians themselves have to have a private place in that conference, because the negotiations will depend on them.
