Syria’s Assad Rebuffs Peace Effort By UN Envoy, UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to press for a political solution to Syria’s year-long uprising.
President Bashar al-Assad told UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan that no political solution was possible in Syria while “terrorist” groups were destabilising the country.
“Syria is ready to make a success of any honest effort to find a solution for the events it is witnessing,” state news agency SANA quoted Mr Assad as telling the envoy.
“No political dialogue or political activity can succeed while there are armed terrorist groups operating and spreading chaos and instability,” the Syrian leader said after about two hours of talks with the former UN secretary-general.
While they discussed Mr Annan’s peace mission, Syrian troops were assaulting the northwestern city of Idlib.
There was no immediate comment from Mr Annan after his meeting with Mr Assad, aimed at halting bloodshed that has cost thousands of lives since a popular uprising erupted a year ago.
