Security Council votes to send observers to Syria

Security Council Chamber

The Security Council has adopted a resolution to deploy an advance monitoring team to Syria.

 All 15 council members voted in favour of the resolution, which has been welcomed by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN-Arab League Joint Special Envoy Kofi Annan, who has been mediating a solution to the country's crisis.

Syria has agreed to Mr. Annan's six-point peace proposal which calls for  a UN-supervised cessation of violence by all parties.
