Russia offers to back Annan's Syria plan at UN
Russian FM: Moscow ready to back Annan's peace plan for Syria with UN resolution
By The Associated Press

MOSCOW (AP) ' Russia's foreign minister says Moscow will support a United Nations resolution endorsing Kofi Annan's plan for settling the Syrian crisis.

Sergey Lavrov said Tuesday that Russia is ready to back Annan's plan with a U.N. Security Council resolution. Annan is the the international envoy charged with trying to help end the violence in the country.

Annan, the former United Nations secretary-general who is joint U.N. and Arab League special envoy, has met twice with Assad earlier this month and made proposals to end the bloodshed, which haven't yet been made public.

Lavrov said, however, that the Security Council shouldn't interpret Annan's proposals as an ultimatum, but simply as a basis for settling the crisis.

Russia has shielded the Syrian regime from U.N. sanctions over its crackdown on protesters.
