Syria to exert all efforts to make Annan's mission successful: president


14:19, March 30, 2012

DAMASCUS, March 29 (Xinhua) -- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Thursday that his country has responded to the mission of UN envoy Kofi Annan, stressing that Syria would exert all efforts to make Annan's mission a success to restore security and stability to Syria.

Assad made the remarks in a message sent Thursday to leaders of the five-nation BRICS bloc, in which he expressed hope that Annan would deal inclusively with all the elements of the Syrian crisis, regionally and internationally, state-run SANA news agency reported.

In the letter carried by Syria's state-run SANA news agency, Assad stressed that in order to make Annan's mission successful, there should be concentration on halting all kinds of support to terrorism in Syria, especially by countries whose officials have declared their financing and arming of the armed terrorist groups in Syria, referring to Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which have explicitly announced their will to arm and support the rebels in Syria.

Earlier in the week, Kofi Annan, the UN-Arab League joint envoy to Syria, announced that Syria has accepted his six-point plan on ending violence. The plan includes commitments to end the violence, allow humanitarian assistance and allow protests.

Assad reasserted the need to convince all countries that support the armed groups in Syria to stop immediately, including neighboring countries which are harboring and facilitating the armed groups' attacks in Syria.

The Syrian president also pointed out that in return of his government's commitment to Annan's initiative, there should be guarantees from other parties to halt all terrorist attacks.
