UN planning peacekeeping force for Syria
United Nations: The United Nations is already planning for a peacekeeping force in Syria should a cease-fire in that country take hold and pending a Security Council mandate.
UN Peacekeeping chief Herve Ladsous said today that it was too early to say how many peacekeepers might be deployed in such an eventual force.
UN and Arab League envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus Sunday as part of his push for a cease-fire between rebels and government forces for the Eid al-Adha holiday, which begins October 26.
"I would confirm that, of course, we are giving a lot of thought to what would happen if and when a political solution or at least a ceasefire would emerge," Ladsous told reporters at the UN.
