Asked whether the Prime Minister thought Tony Blair would make a suitable replacement for Kofi Annan, the PMOS said that work with other countries was needed to deal with situation in Syria and that the Annan plan hadn’t worked. He reminded them that on Friday, the UN General Assembly had passed a resolution which condemned the Security Council’s lack of action on Syria. He said that the UN Security Council (UNSC) needed to respond to that resolution and show that it could live up to its responsibilities. He said that the issue was not about who the envoy was, but about the UNSC.

Asked what the PM thought of the Syrian Prime Minister’s defection, the PMOS said he was aware of reports. If true, it would be the most senior Syrian politician to defect and would serve to highlight the fact that the regime was bankrupt and had lost all legitimacy.
