Qatar: We must stop brutality in Syria

As the diplomatic debate over Syria drags on, the Syrian crisis continues with the death toll topping 110,000. But the U.S and Russia are not the only international players engaged in the debate, regional actors in the Middle East are as well.

Syria's neighbors include Lebanon and Iraq, two countries with a history of sectarian violence and civil conflict. Thus, an escalation of violence or foreign military intervention will no doubt have an effect on these countries as well as the rest of the region. Because of this, almost every country in the Middle East has voiced its preference on whether intervention in Syria is preferable or not.

Qatar is among the countries in the Middle East calling for intervention.

In this interview, Becky speaks with Qatari Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Atiyya to clarify what kind of intervention Qatar wants to see in Syria.
