The former envoy for the international community in the Balkans admits that there is a lack of agreement on sanctions against the Syrian regime cracking down on the opposition there, but he feels that sanctions don't help the hundreds of civilians being killed.
He maintains that the problem is that we can't get into Syria - and that the UN and the Red Cross are trying but only partially succeeding.
