ANKARA - UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan said on Monday the world must send a clear and united message that the killing of civilians in Syria is "simply unacceptable," as he arrived in Turkey after weekend talks with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Annan said he was trying to get everybody to the table through a political process, while ensuring that humanitarian access is opened and the killing of civilians stops.

"Since I came to the region I am following very, very closely developments in Syria and there are grave and appalling reports of atrocities and abuses," Annan told reporters in Ankara before meeting Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan.
