Remarks to the press: Ambassador Wittig on Syria
(near verbatim transcript of remarks to the press by Ambassador Wittig ahead of a Security Council meeting on Syria)
"We support Lakhdar Brahimi and his initiative. We’re keen to listen to his assessment after the contacts in the region, and we're keen on his assessment today, how he gages the chances to get a cessation of violence. We support him and we are also in favour that the Security Council sends out a strong signal and rallies behind Brahimi. So we will be supporting him. My Foreign Minister has made this clear a couple of days ago and we'll see that the Council can send out this signal."
