The international community especially the great powers should reach a consensus to support the mediation efforts of the Joint Special Envoy Kofi Annan and open the political dialogue without prerequisites and presupposed results as early as possible.

Kofi Annan, the joint special envoy of the United Nations and the League of Arab States on the Syria conflict, has recently announced that the Syrian action group would hold a ministerial meeting in Geneva on June 30, coping with the escalating Syrian crisis. Annan's proposal of establishing a national coalition government in Syria will be one of the main topics at the meeting.

The Syrian violent conflict has last for 16 months. According to the statistics of the United Nations, the increasingly fierce bloody conflict has caused more than 10,000 deaths and tens of thousands of people homeless. Syrian President Bashar Val-Assad has said that his country is in "a state of war." Influenced by the worsening security situation, the UN observer mission has suspended their mediation efforts.

Although the process of politically resolving the Syrian conflict is facing new challenges, the international community did not give up their mediation efforts. The forthcoming international conference on Syrian conflict is the latest evidence and the recent EU foreign ministers meeting and the NATO council meeting have also sent out similar signal, both of which excluded or gave a "low-key response" to the possibility of military intervention.
