MOSCOW, May 6 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov sees some progress in the process of a peace settlement in Syria, linking it also with the presence of UN observers in that country.
“The head of the UN mission reported that the scope of violence in Syria has sizably diminished. This means that the plan of (Special Envoy of the United Nations and the League of Arab States on the Syrian Crisis Kofi) Annan works and that control of the United Nations is efficient,” Gatilov noted in his microblog on Twitter.
