Intn'l help crucial for Syria peace - envoy

International help is indispensable for solving the protracted internal conflict in Syria, UN and Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi told participants in the Munich Security Council on Friday.

He said it was up to the UN Security Council to decide the agenda of the entire peace process, based, among other things, on the Geneva accords mediated by his predecessor, Kofi Annan.

“It hinges on the need to set up a compromise government acceptable to all conflicting sides to run the country during the transitional period leading up to elections,” emphasized the envoy.

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will be meeting today in Munich with US Vice President Joseph Biden and then with Lakhdar Brahimi to discuss the Syrian conflict.
