UN: Annan shows dissatisfaction at Assad response to mission
Kofi Annan, the UN-Arab League special envoy for Syria, indicated dissatisfaction on Wednesday with the response received from Damascus following his weekend meeting with President Bashar al-Assad, dpa reported.
"The joint special envoy for Syria, Kofi Annan, has now received the responses from Syrian authorities, but he has questions and is seeking answers," spokesman Martin Nesirky said at UN headquarters in New York.
"But giving the grave and tragic situation on the ground, everyone must realize the time is of the essence. As he has said in the region, this crisis cannot be allowed to drag on," Nesirky added.
