Kofi Annan to brief Security Council about Syria challenges

UN Supervision Mission in Syria

UN-Arab League Joint Special Envoy Kofi Annan will brief the Security Council on Tuesday as a fragile cessation of violence in Syria enters its second week.

The closed-door meeting comes days after the Council unanimously agreed to deploy a 300-strong UN Supervision Mission in Syria.

The observers will join an advance team already on the ground. Syria has accepted Mr. Annan's six-point plan which also calls for withdrawal of heavy armoury from civilian areas.

Yvette Morris asked his spokesman, Ahmad Fawzi, if this has occurred.
