Brahimi says world neglect of Syria behind Iraq unrest

A picture taken on May 13, 2014 shows Lakhdar Brahimi, former United Nations and Arab League Special Envoy to Syria, speaking to the media at the end of a meeting with the Security Council at the UN headquarters in New YorkThe unrest sweeping Iraq is a direct result of the world’s indifference to the conflict in neighbouring Syria, former peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi told AFP in an interview on Sunday. Jihadist-led militants launched an offensive six days ago and swiftly advanced to within 80 kilometres (50 miles) of Baghdad’s city limits, bringing Iraq’s security forces to the brink of collapse. Brahimi, who resigned in May as the UN-Arab League mediator for Syria, said the international community’s inaction on the conflict in Syria had precipitated the crisis in Iraq.
