UN Security Council calls for peace plan in Syria

The United Nations Security Council, including Russia and China, on Wednesday morning adopted a presidential statement that backed Special Envoy to Syria Kofi Annan's proposal to end the ongoing violence in Syria.

The non-binding statement is backed by the 15 council members including the five permanent members – China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The statement calls for the Syrian government and the opposition party to immediately implement the proposals for the "six-point" peace plan outlined by Annan -- including a cease-fire, inclusive political talks and a daily two-hour humanitarian halt to fighting.

Annan presented Syrian President Bashar al-Assad the peace plan when he visited the country early this month.

Li Baodong, Chinese permanent representative to the UN, said the statement adopted on Wednesday "reflects the united voice of the council", and is "a positive step towards a political solution for Syria".

Li said China supports Annan's mediation efforts on the Syrian crisis and hopes the Syrian government to actively support and cooperate with Annan.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called it a "unified action" by the council and he hopes it can mark "a turning point" in the international community's response to the pressing crisis.
