The joint UN-Arab League envoy for Syria told the Security Council Monday that the country will complete the withdrawal of troops and heavy weapons from populated areas by April 10 according to US Ambassador Susan Rice.

Envoy Kofi Annan has also urged the Council to give Syrian President Bashar al-Assad those 10 days to fully comply with the cease-fire.

Mr. Annan has been pushing his six-point peace plan to both the Syrian government and the opposition which have been fighting for more than a year now.
