The United Nations peace envoy to Syria -- Lakhdar Brahimi -- met Sunday with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to discuss ways to end the country’s ongoing conflict.
Here’s the BBC.

“Mr. Brahimi told reporters that he exchanged views with the president about the many steps that need to be taken in the future.”

According to SyriaOnline, Brahimi briefed the president on his recent talks to help solve the country’s crisis. The pair also discussed cooperation between the Syrian government and the UN Envoy.

“‘I also talked about what steps which I see appropriate to be taken to help the Syrian people to get out of this crisis..’ Mr. Brahimi has since left Syria. He says that it’s a crisis there that’s only worsening.”

The meeting comes just one day after dozens of people were killed as they waited in line at a bakery to buy bread. It could be the country’s deadliest airstrike since the conflict began.

Brahimi traveled by land from Beirut because of fighting near the airport in Damascus. His last visit to Syria was in October.
