The West and the Arab League countries agreed yesterday in the Tunis summit to increase the pressure on the Syrian government to find a "political solution" to allow the waiver of Bashar al Assad and the establishment of a transitional government. The meeting was attended by all members of the European Union, the U.S. and many Arab countries, but Russia and China again showed its alignment with Syria and decided not to attend.
The conference appeared more hawkish. Countries such as Tunisia, Qatar and Saudi Arabia proposed arming the Syrian opposition so he can face the army and create an "Arab peace force" to intervene in the conflict. None was formally adopted by the moment. Russia claimed that there is already a steady flow of arms and ammunition from abroad that is addressed to the rebel Liberation Army Syria.
Tunisian President, Moncef Marzuki, who hosted the summit, proposed exile with immunity to President Assad. "We must find a political solution and agree to the Syrian president, his family and members of his regime judicial immunity and a place where shelter, Russia can offer," he said.
The idea is that Assad group agrees to hand over power to Vice President Farouk al Sharaa, then start a democratic era. "For those who say it is an unfair solution, we say it is against justice, but we believe that the lives of thousands of Syrians is more important than the justice," Marzuki said.
In their final declaration, the summit called on the Assad regime an "immediate end to all violence" in order to establish a humanitarian corridor. Otherwise, threatens new "political, diplomatic and economic".
On the other hand, the group considers the Syrian opposition National Council which brings together most of the dissident groups-a "legitimate representation of the Syrians, who seeks a peaceful democratic transition." Also he assured the Council that receive "practical help" for growth. To which I refer, specifically, is that in addition to humanitarian aid could send weapons.
Meanwhile, the Red Cross and Red Crescent arrived last night Homs to evacuate the victims of the bombings, including two journalists wounded and the bodies of the other two reporters murdered: the U.S. Marie Colvin, The Sunday Times, and French photographer Remi Ochlik.
