protests in Syria

The Joint UN and Arab league Special Envoy's technical team is in Damascus to negotiate with the Syrian government on a peace plan.

They are continuing with the talks that began when Special Envoy Kofi Annan met with President Bashir as-Assad in Syria.

Mr. Annan's spokesman Ahmad Fawzi says the team is pushing a set of proposals from the Special Envoy, but there is no set timetable.

"How long they stay depends upon Syrian cooperation if there is progress on the Syrian side in implementing the proposals they will stay."

Kofi Annan has said after he sees sufficient progress, he will return to the region.
