Kofi Annan resigns as envoy to Syria

Kofi Annan has resigned his post as UN-Arab League envoy to Syria, the Washington Post has reported. Annan said “When the Syrian people desperately need action, there continues to be finger-pointing and name-calling in the Security Council,” the former U.N. secretary general said, according to a transcript. “It is impossible for me or anyone to compel the Syrian government and also the opposition to take the steps to bring about the political process.”
