Kofi Annan has highlighted the importance of the international community speaking "with one voice" if it is to have an impact on the Syrian regime.

He said without a single, united voice the different "parties play with the mediators."

In his role as UN-Arab League Joint Special Envoy for Syria, Mr Annan said the first thing to do in the country was to "do everything we can to stop the violence and the killing."
