UNITED NATIONS - The UN-Arab League mediator in the Syria conflict, Lakhdar Brahimi, dismissed rumors on Friday he was resigning due to frustration with the Arab League and the Security Council's inaction, but said he considers departing on a daily basis.

"I haven't resigned," Brahimi told reporters. "Every day I wake up and think I should resign. One day perhaps I will resign."

He also dismissed reports that he agreed to remain in the post for three more months.

UN diplomats said on Tuesday that Brahimi hoped to revamp his role as peace mediator in the two-year-old Syrian conflict as a United Nations envoy without any official link to the Arab League.

But UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon made clear the following day that he wanted Brahimi to continue working as a joint representative of both the Arab League and United Nations.
