UNITED NATIONS, March 10 (Itar-Tass) —— The Joint Special Envoy of the United Nations and the League of Arab States for Syria, Kofi Annan, urged Syria's President Bashar al-Assad to take “concrete steps” to end the current crisis in his country.

According to a statement issued by his spokesperson, Annan described the talk with Assad on Saturday, March 10, as “candid” and “comprehensive.” The two men will resume discussions on Sunday, March 11, before Annan leaves for Doha, Qatar, in the afternoon.
