Lakhdar Brahimi

Syrian authorities have confirmed their willingness to participate in an international conference aimed at ending the ongoing crisis in the country.

That is one of the outcomes of UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi's visit to Syria and other countries in the Middle East to shore up support for the conference.

Although no date has been set for the conference, known as Geneva II, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has indicated that it could take place in mid-November.

UN Radio's Reem Abaza spoke on the line to Damascus with Khawla Mattar, spokesperson for the Joint Special Representative, to find out more about Mr. Brahimi's meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Wednesday.
