United Nations and Arab League Envoy for Syria, Kofi Annan, has reiterated the fact that his six point plan has still not succeeded in ending the violence in Syria. Later in the speech, he urged all governments to work together to support mediation between the Syrian government and opposition groups within the country.

Speaking to reporters in Geneva after a private video conference session with the UN Security Council in New York, the joint envoy said that the UN-led mission in Syria would attempt to assist in locations that have seen "horrific violence".

Kofi Annan, UN, AL Envoy for Syria, said, "The operating vehicle, tool, is the six-point plan, which is endorsed by the Security Council in resolutions 2042 and 2043. That frames everything. Within that framework, the discussion we had was to take action at those locations where one has seen such horrific violence that you can’t get in humanitarian assistance, people who are trapped couldn’t get out and work out ceasefire arrangements at these localities with possibly the help of UNSMIS (United Nations Supervision Mission in Syria). This does not free anybody from the broader obligation of the ceasefire as indicated in the plan."
