Syria calls for int'l true commitment to end domestic crisis


09:04, July 10, 2012

DAMASCUS, July 9 (Xinhua) -- The Syrian administration stressed Monday the international commitment to the peace plan brokered by special envoy Kofi Annan, state media reported, saying that the plan's prospect depends largely on halting international support to armed opposition.

The official SANA news agency said the success of Annan's plan largely relies on halting financial and arm supply to the armed groups on ground as well as a true commitment and desire by the international community toward ending the Syrian crisis.

SANA said that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has discussed with Annan the current situation in Syria and the mechanisms that could be adopted by the Syrian government in cooperation with the UN supervision mission to bring the violence in the country to an end.

For his side, Annan said he concluded an approach with Assad Monday regarding ending the violence, adding that the approach will be also shared with the armed opposition.

Annan, who arrived in Syria Sunday afternoon, saw his discussions with the embattled Syrian leader as "constructive."

"We discussed the need to end the violence and ways and means of doing so and we agreed on an approach, which I will share with the armed opposition," Annan told reporters in Damascus after meeting Assad.
