Moscow Calls for Interstate Meeting on Annan Plan

Countries that have influence on the Syrian opposition should hold a meeting to outline measures in support of the peace plan proposed by the UN and Arab League envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday.

“We would consider it necessary to hold a meeting with the states that really influence various opposition forces in Syria. There not so many of them – the UN Security Council’s permanent members, leading countries in the region, Turkey, Iran, the Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation,” Lavrov said, adding the EU could also join.

Lavrov said these organizations and countries should agree to adhere to Annan’s peace plan.
