STRELNA, September 6 (Itar-Tass) - Not a single country in the world has the right to dispense justice in Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, the UN special envoy to Syria, said on Friday after a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
He said that he and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon had received numerous questions about plans of a number of Western states to deliver air strikes against Syria. However he said neither himself nor the U.N. secretary general were authorized to speak up with their personal opinions. He said they were constraint to international law, which has it that not a single country may administer justice bypassing the United Nations Security Council.
He stressed that the world community must be oriented towards politicial settlement of the Syrian conflict. In his words, at today’s meeting with the Group of Twenty leaders he had assured that the United Nations was working in close contact with both the American and Russian sides to prepare an international conference on Syria.
At the same time, Brahimi warned that plans to convene such a forum might be frustrated because of what had happened on August 21, when, according to the opposition, chemical weapons were used against it, and because of possible consequences of those developments. Saying this, he obviously meant U.S. and its allies’ plans to deliver a strike against Syria.
