Annan to be special U.N. envoy to Syria

Quote:
The United Nations and the League of Arab States appointed former U.N. head Kofi Annan as special joint envoy to handle the year-long deadly Syrian crisis.

In a joint statement, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Arab League Secretary-General Nabil El-Araby said Annan will serve as their representative on the crisis and will have a deputy from the Arab world to be announced later, U.N. News said on its Web site.

The announcement said the crisis in Syria has claimed the lives of thousands of people in the government's crackdown on the pro-democracy uprising.

"The Special Envoy will provide good offices aimed at bringing an end to all violence and human rights violations, and promoting a peaceful solution to the Syrian crisis," the statement said.(cnredd note - )

Annan will consult broadly and engage with all relevant interlocutors within and outside Syria to find a peaceful Syrian-led and inclusive political solution that meets the democratic aspirations of its people, the statement said.

Annan was U.N. secretary-general from 1997 through 2006.
Finally!...

Syria's gonna get that stern letter begging for adherence to non-binding gestures...

You know I'm up to here with revolutions. I haven't even read about what is going on there. Sometimes you just have to step back.
