Lakhdar Brahimi, a 78-year-old veteran Algerian diplomat and former U.N. envoy to Afghanistan and Iraq, made his comments alongside Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon in his first public appearance at the United Nations since accepting the job abandoned by Kofi Annan earlier this month.

“Secretary-General, when you called me I told you that I was honored, flattered, humbled and scared, and I am still in that frame of mind,” Brahimi said during a photo opportunity where he did not take questions.

The Syrian people will be “our first masters,” he added. “We will consider their interests above and before everything else.”
