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.
Annan also expressed serious concern over the situation in Syria, and put forward several proposals to stop the violence and the killing, give access for humanitarian agencies and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), release detainees, and start an inclusive political dialogue to address the legitimate aspirations and concerns of the people, the U.N. said
