country, media reports said.
In a letter to the grouping on Wednesday, Assad called for its intervention to put an end to continued violence and to facilitate a political
He also urged them to exert pressure to get the "unjust and illegal" economic sanctions lifted to alleviate the Syrian people's sufferings.
The appeal came a day after the Arab League, which suspended Syria from the regional grouping in November 2011, granted the long-vacant seat to the
West-backed Syrian Opposition National Coalition, and urged all countries to support it with all means including military aid.
The Assad regime rejected the pan-Arab body's decision warning that it would have "dangerous" repercussions on the organization's future and the
Arab national security as it would cause more bloodshed and encourage "terrorism and terrorists."
The BRICS grouping of five emerging economies - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa -- concluded their fifth summit in the South African
city of Durban the other day.
According to the U.N., more than 70,000 people have been killed, nearly three million displaced and another 1.1 million fled to neighboring countries
since a rebellion against the Assad regime in Syria broke out in March, 2011.
