"The conflict in Syria begins to threaten regional and international security", said Ban Ki-moon at the UN Security Council meeting on the Middle East. However, he stressed that the crisis in Syria cannot be resolved by military means.
Earlier, as reported by the Reuters, the UN and the Arab League special envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus. The sides discussed the ways to resolve the conflict that occurs in the country for the past year and a half.
Brahimi believes that both the Syrian authorities and the opposition need peace in the country. "The points of contact (for both government and opposition) do exist. They are the Syrians who want peace in their country. It's necessary to help the parties find common ground", said Brahimi after meeting with Assad. "Perhaps we are able to contribute to this", he added.
"At the same time, I repeat that I have no plan (of resolution of the conflict in Syria)", special envoy declared.
