President al-Assad meets Annan for Syria Talks

(Omar al-Shaaro | Dp-news)

DAMASCUS- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad meets International envoy Kofi Annan on Monday for talks on escalating violence in Syria and on ways to end the violence between opposition forces and government troops.

Press reports on Monday said that Annan arrived Sunday at Damas Rose hotel in the Syrian capital, Damascus, where UN observers have been staying since suspending their patrols because of an increase in the level of violence.

In a Sunday interview with German television, President Bashar al-Assad accused the United States, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar of hindering peace and supporting what he calls “terrorists.”





The United States is "part of the conflict. They offer the umbrella and political support to those gangs to... destabilise Syria" President al-Assad told German public broadcaster ARD.



At his interview with the German television, President al-Assad indicated that Annan plan "shouldn't fail" and that the international envoy was doing a "difficult but good job".

But he said the plan had failed to stop bloodshed because "many countries don't want it to succeed".



"So they offer political support and they still send armaments and send money to terrorists in Syria. They want it to fail in this way," President al-Assad said.



The United Nations wants independent investigators to probe Mr. Assad's charges that terrorists, and not the government, are responsible for the violence.



On Sunday, Ahmad Fawzi, Spokesman of the UN Special Envoy to Syria Kofi Annan, said that Annan arrived in Damascus to hold conversation with the Syrian leadership.



The visit is the third to Syria as the UN Special Envoy; the last visit was on May29th.
