UN: Syria Has Agreed to 300 Observers on its Territory


Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations said, Thursday evening, that Syria had agreed to the deployment of 300 military observers on its territory, and called on the Security Council to expedite the deployment process.

In his remarks, Ban stressed that if the UN is going to succeed in its mission of bringing peace to Israel's northern neighbor, forces loyal to President Bashar Al-Assad and those allied with the opposition will have to cooperate with the observers.
