Kofi Annan's Plan in Action2012-04-04 13:06
Syrian authorities started withdrawing of the troops and armored vehicles from the cities as part of implementation Kofi Annan's peaceful resolution plan.
As reported by the Pravda.ru. Syrian authorities started withdrawing of the troops and armored vehicles from the cities as part of implementation Kofi Annan's peaceful resolution plan. However, the military are leaving only relatively calm regions.
It is expected that the withdrawal will last until April 10. After that, both sides of the conflict will have exactly 48 hours to ensure the complete cessation of firing. This is a necessary condition for the start of a dialogue between the authorities and the armed opposition, the edition reported.
The withdrawal of troops and armored vehicles from the cities plan is the key item of the peaceful resolution of the situation in Syria. It was proposed by the UN special envoy and former Secretary General Kofi Annan.
However, the armed opposition is not satisfied with these conditions. On the eve, in an interview with The Associated Press, one of opposition representatives expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that "the troops remain in their positions in the vicinity of Damascus", the RG.ru reported.
In turn, Kofi Annan urged the UN Security Council to support the April 10 as deadline for troops withdrawal. "Given the urgency of the situation, you need to start considering the possible establishment of a UN mission to monitor the situation in Syria", the edition led Annan's words.
Kofi Annan's plan provides the cessation of armed violence by all parties under the effective control of a special mechanism of the UN and humanitarian aid to the victims of the bloodshed. In March, the UN Security Council unanimously endorsed the peaceful resolution plan, proposed by the UN Special Envoy, General Kofi Annan.
Syrian authorities approved the plan of peaceful conflict resolution, offered by the UN and the Arab League special envoy to Syria General Kofi Annan, in late March this year. "Syrian leadership wrote a letter to special envoy Kofi Annan about its consent to his six-point plan. Plan was previously approved by the UN Security Council", Kofi Annan's spokesman Ahmad Fawzi said.
In turn, Annan called on Damascus to urgently start implementing the plan. "Special envoy expresses his acknowledgment for the broad support to his mediation efforts and calls on key countries to help in their implementation and to ensure their effective implementation", the edition quoted Ahmad Fawzi.
