Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister warned on Monday that confidence in international envoy Kofi Annan’s peace efforts was fading fast because of the relentless bloodshed in Syria.

“Confidence in the efforts of the international envoy is falling rapidly because fighting and bloodshed continue,” Prince Saud al-Faisal told reporters after Riyadh hosted a consultative summit of Arab leaders of the Gulf.
