Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Arabi on Wednesday blamed the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council for a recent decision by U.N. envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi to leave his post.

In a statement, Al-Arabi said the failure of the Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities and stop unrelenting bloodshed in Syria since 2011 prompted Brahimi to resign.

The Arab League chief expressed sorrow over Brahimi's resignation, saying the Arab diplomat had made strenuous efforts to put an end to the Syrian crisis.

He also accused the international community of failing to offer enough support for Brahimi to reach a negotiated solution to the Syrian conflict.

Brahimi announced his resignation on Tuesday, expressing regret for his inability to forge a coherent international response to the world's worst humanitarian crisis in Syria.

Syria has been ravaged by civil war for almost four years now, but the crisis has left millions of people displaced both inside and outside Syria.
