Brazil says will help end Syria crisis

Brazilian Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota  

Brazil says it is ready to contribute to finding a way that would end nearly two years of deadly violence in Syria.

Brazilian Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota said Thursday that Brasilia “has long supported a negotiated solution to the Syrian impasse.”

    “We are willing to make a contribution and support these efforts,” Patriota stated.
The Brazilian foreign minister made the remarks after Russia and the United States agreed on May 7 to encourage the Syrian government and the foreign-backed armed opposition to find a political solution to the crisis.

Moscow and Washington have also agreed to hold another international peace conference on Syria, following the Geneva meeting in June 2012.

On June 30, 2012, foreign ministers of several countries including China, France, Russia, and the UK foreign secretary and the US secretary of state met in Geneva and proposed a resolution to the crisis in Syria on mutual consent.

Patriota said Brazil welcomed the issue of holding an international conference on Syria.
