MOSCOW, April 10 (Itar-Tass) — The implementation by Damascus of the Six-Point Plan, suggestrd by Kofi Annan, special envoy of the United Nations and the League of Arab States, for a peaceful settlement of the situation in Syria is to be discussed here on Tuesday by the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Russia and Syria -- Sergei Lavrov and Walid Muallem.
The deadline, set in Mr. Annan's "roadmap", expires precisely on April 10 when the Syrian government is urged to withdraw troops and heavy armaments from cities and populated areas. Forty-eight hours after that is done, by seven a. m. on April 12, all sides involved in the conflict -- the authorities and the opposition -- should fully cease resorting to violence in the country.
