"... Brahimi has grown disillusioned with the Arab bloc after it officially recognized the Syrian opposition at an Arab League meeting earlier this month, making it difficult for him to remain neutral in his role as mediator. The diplomats spoke to the news agency on condition of anonymity ."The joint special representative feels that the Arab League approach makes it difficult for him to carry out his mandate," a diplomat said.
"He feels that it would be best to be associated only with the United Nations at this point to ensure his neutrality." (haha)
Rumours of Brahimi's dissatisfaction have been circulating for many weeks, but the diplomats told Reuters that The Algerian envoy is keen to carry on working on the UN peace effort in Syria.
