UN Envoy to Syria Agrees Not to Resign

The UN-Arab League envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, has agreed to continue in the post after Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon asked him to stay, the deputy UN secretary-general said on Thursday.

Brahimi had indicated in recent weeks that he planned to resign because his efforts to find a political solution to the conflict have failed.
