Brahimi, who served as a
U.N. envoy in Afghanistan and Iraq, formally accepted the post and will
resume efforts to find a diplomatic solution to Syria’s crisis, said
Eduardo del Buey, deputy spokesman for Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon.

“The
violence and the suffering in Syria must come to an end,” del Buey
said. “The Secretary-General appreciates Mr. Brahimi’s willingness to
bring his considerable talents and experience to this crucial task for
which he will need, and rightly expects, the strong, clear and unified
support of the international community, including the Security Council.”

Annan
announced earlier this month that he would resign on Aug. 31 as joint
U.N.-Arab League envoy to Syria, after failing to broker a cease-fire as
the country descended into civil war. The U.N. says at least 18,000
people have been killed since March 2011.
