Annan says 'Syria has agreed to April 10 deadline for implementing peace plan'

Damascus, Tue, 03 Apr 2012 ANI

Damascus, Apr 3 (ANI): Special UN-Arab League envoy to Syria Kofi Annan has said that Damascus has agreed to implement his six-point peace plan by April 10.

The plan calls for a UN-supervised ceasefire by all parties, withdrawal of soldiers and heavy weapons from cities, and delivery of humanitarian aid.

Annan has asked the Security Council for its backing of next Tuesday's deadline for Syria to partially implement his peace plan, with a full ceasefire within 48 hours.

According to The BBC, Syria's ambassador to the UN, Bashar Ja'fari, confirmed that they have accepted the April 10 deadline, but said that Annan must get similar commitments from the opposition.

US ambassador to the UN Susan Rice, however, stressed that 'past experience would lead us to be sceptical' that Syria would implement the Annan plan.

"We have seen... promises made and promises broken," she said warning that it was possible violence might escalate instead. (ANI)
