West 'to blame' for Syria's destruction, says top diplomat

Syria is being destroyed ‘bit by bit’, a top diplomat has said.

The fault for its destruction lies with president Bashar Assad’s government and the western-backed opposition forces, the joint UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi said.

Speaking at the UN he said: ‘Objectively, they are co-operating to destroy Syria. Syria is being destroyed bit by bit.

‘And in destroying Syria, the region is being pushed into a situation that is extremely bad, and extremely important for the entire world.’
