Brahimi's success depends on Turkey, S. Arabia's change of Approach

(Dp-News - FNA)
TEHRAN- Syrian Ambassador to Tehran Hamed Hassan called on Turkey and Saudi Arabia to change their approach to Syria, and said UN-Arab League Special Envoy on Syria Lakhdar Brahimi would succeed in his mission only if certain foreign states stop supplying weapons to terrorist groups in his country.

"We approved the plan (proposed) by Brahimi and by (Kofi) Annan before him, but the plan will succeed only if countries like Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar which provide arms support for the terrorists change their method and approach," Hassan told FNA on Tuesday.

The US daily, Washington Post, reported in May that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups battling the President Bashar al-Assad's government have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.

The newspaper, quoting opposition activists and US and foreign officials, reported that Obama administration officials emphasized the administration has expanded contacts with opposition military forces to provide the Persian Gulf nations with assessments of rebel credibility and command-and-control infrastructure.

Opposition activists who several months ago said the rebels were running out of ammunition said in May that the flow of weapons - most bought on the black market in neighboring countries or from elements of the Syrian military in the past - has significantly increased after a decision by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Gulf states to provide millions of dollars in funding each month.
