As reported by the RIA Novosti referring to the Reuters, the United Nations is considering other candidates, including the former head of Foreign Ministry of Spain Miguel Moratinos.

The news about the resignation of Secretary-General Kofi Annan from the post of the UN and the League of Arab States Special Envoy to Syria appeared in the media last week. Annan's mandate expires on August 31. In the course of his speech in Geneva Kofi Annan declared that he had not received worthy support of his mission.

Recall, in the spring in Syria there was declared a truce in accordance with Kofi Annan's peace plan. However, the idea of the UN and the League of Arab States Special Envoy to Syria failed: new armed clashes broke out throughout the country.

Armed conflict between government forces and rebels in Syria broke out in March last year. According to the UN, about 16 thousand people have already become the victims of the clashes.
