What's Next in Syria?


Washington's regime change plan remains on track.

by Stephen Lendman

On March 27, Syria formally accepted Kofi Annan's six-point peace plan. His spokesman, Ahmad Fawzi said:

"The Syrian government has written to the Joint Special Envoy Kofi Annan accepting his six-point plan, endorsed by the United Nations Security Council."

"Mr Annan views this as an important initial step that could bring an end to the violence and the bloodshed, provide aid to the suffering, and create an environment conducive to a political dialogue that would fulfil the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people."

At the same time, the Western-backed Syrian National Council (SNC) rejected the plan. SNC member Naji Tayara spuriously accused Assad of wanting "more time to continue with the killing."

Russia welcomed Assad's acceptance. A Foreign Ministry statement said it's a way to end violence if both sides agree to talk and end violence. Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said:

"Moscow met with satisfaction the statement of UN and Arab League special envoy Kofi Annan that he had received the confirmation of the Syrian government's consent to his proposal for peaceful settlement in the Syrian Arab Republic."
