UNITED NATIONS, April 21 (Itar-Tass) —— The U.N. Security Council on Saturday, April 21, passed a resolution, drafted by Russia, thus agreeing to send a full-format observer mission to Syria.
The mission will be established for the initial period of 90 days and will consist of up 300 unarmed military observers and the appropriate civilian component.
The mission will monitor compliance with the ceasefire agreement by the parties to the conflict and will watch and support Joint Special Envoy of the United Nations and the League of Arab States, Kofi Annan's six-point crisis settlement plan.
