UN handling of Syria crisis unacceptable: Qatar

December 14, 2012

The way the Security Council is handling the Syrian crisis is unacceptable, Qatar’s Prime Minister and Chairman of the Arab Ministerial Committee on Syria has said.

Addressing a meeting for the Committee on Sunday evening in Doha, Shaikh Hamad Bin Jasem Al Thani expressed hope that the ongoing meetings between the US and Russia would reach a common understanding on the developments in Syria that would enable the Security Council to assume its responsibilities towards the crisis in the country, Qatar News Agency (QNA) said.

Shaikh Hamad, also his country’s foreign minister, said that he hoped the meetings being held by the UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi with the five permanent members of the Security Council would result in a common understanding for the implementation of the Arab and international resolutions and in an agreement to form a government of national unity.

“Since the Committee’s previous meetings in Doha, we have wished to resolve the Syrian crisis in a friendly manner, but after all the bloodshed and devastation in Syria, we have to stand up and say that enough is enough and that the power transition must take place,” Shaikh Hamad said, quoted by the official news agency.
