Makdessi: We're Waiting for Brahimi's Arrival to Learn about Results of Recent Visits to Countries including Those That Influence Armed Groups

Oct 16, 2012


DAMASCUS, (SANA) – Spokesman of the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry Dr. Jihad Makdessi affirmed that any initiative, regardless of its type, requires commitment by all sides in order for it to succeed.

In a statement to SANA on Tuesday, Makdessi said that the Syrian side is waiting for the arrival of UN Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi to learn about the results of his recent visits to a number of countries, including countries that have influence over armed groups.

He voiced hope that Ibrahimi will bring from these countries something to lead to the success of any constructive initiative, noting that Syria has already shown commitment to Arab and international initiatives that were ultimately foiled by armed groups and the countries that influence them.

Brahimi had called for a ceasefire in Syria on occasion of Eid al-Adha, according to his spokesman Ahmad Fawzi.
