Kofi Annan, the UN and Arab League joint special envoy for Syria, has called for "one mediation process" accepted by all the parties concerned. He says this is crucial to end the current crisis in Syria.

Annan, who served as UN secretary-general from 1997 through 2006, was appointed as special envoy last Thursday, to find a political solution to the almost one year long crisis of Syria.
