MOSCOW, April 25 (Itar-Tass) — The arrival of the observer mission in Syria has been changing the situation for the better slowly but surely, the Syrian opposition’s chief delegate, Kadri Jamil, of the National Front for Freedom and Change, told Itar-Tass upon arrival in Moscow.
“So far, only a small group of observers has arrived in Syria,” he said. “But when their number will go up to 300, we believe, they will be playing a more active role. We wish to get an impartial assessment of the situation from them.”
Since the arrival of the first observers the situation has changed for the better just a little bit, Jamil said. “There has been less bloodshed,” he added.
