Turkey: Syria mediator Brahimi needs UNSC consensus

ANKARA - The new UN international mediator on Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, will need consensus in the United Nations Security Council if he is to succeed in his mission, Turkey's foreign minister said on Friday.
"Brahimi's appointment is significant but the UN Security Council needs to back him up in unity ...," Ahmet Davutoglu told a news conference in Ankara.
"If we don't want his mission to be unsuccessful like (predecessor Kofi) Annan's, we should form a consensus at the Security Council and not allow any delaying tactics," said Davutoglu.
