Brahimi enters Syria as UN-AL peace envoy

UN and Arab League peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi has arrived in Syria on his first visit to the crisis-hit country since his appointment in mid-August.

Brahimi arrived in Syria and was accompanied by Mokhtar Lamani, who will remain in Damascus to assume his new functions as head of office for the Joint Special Representative for Syria in the capital city.

On his three day visit, Brahimi is scheduled to hold talks with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as well as other government officials and representatives of the Syrian opposition.

The UN Envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, said no one disagrees with the need to stop the bloodshed and restore harmony among the people in Syria.

In a statement upon arrival in Damascus International Airport on Thursday, Brahimi added “We came to Syria for consultation with the brotherly Syrians… There is a crisis and I think it is deteriorating.”
