(MENAFN - Arab Times) New york june 21 (kuna): dr abdullah al-maatouq a senior kuwaiti aide of the un chief has urged for rapid international intervention in iraq to avert possible flare-up of an endless internal civil warfare. dr al-maatouq representative of the un secretary general for humanitarian affairs who also serves as an advisor at kuwait's amiri diwan told kuwait news agency (kuna) as he emerged from a meeting with the un secretary general ban ki-moon held late on friday that he discussed with the un chief the security and humane conditions in iraq and syria and the necessity for speedy action to contain these two crises.

the secretary general he added expressed understanding and support for his opinion regarding dangers of the iraqi crisis and its forecast impact on the neighboring states as well as the necessity to 'tackle the issues before further aggravation.' dr maatouq quoted ban as stressing on the necessity that major powers shoulder the responsibility of confronting possible spillover of instability across the middle east.

the un representative in the remarks to kuna added that he feared civilians' relocation on a much greater scale as compared to the civilians' plight in syria and that he feared flare-up of an endless civil war in iraq adding that the un would address an appeal to the international community to tackle the tragic conditions in iraq and for increasing relief aid to those in need.

moreover dr maatouq expressed hope that delivery of aid supplies that had been pledged at the two donors' conferences held in kuwait would reach 90 percent of the total promised support by the summer end. 'these funds are insufficient however they have been helpful in tackling some problems in syria and (refugees') host countries' he added.

he also said that the talks with ban dealt with these two conventions hosted by kuwait on march 18 and june 18 and issues related to the humanitarian aspect of the syrians' plight. the talks with the secretary he stated dealt with dr maatouq's recent missions in lebanon and jordan where he examined conditions of the syrian refugees. they also touched on conditions in yemen and their forecast impact on the other gulf countries and means of aiding the displaced there.
