Russia: Annan Not Doing Enough with Syrian Opposition

Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov accused Kofi Annan, the United Nations' and Arab League's special envoy to Syria, Friday, of not doing enough to bring an end to the violence between the government of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and opposition forces.

"To be honest, we do not see our partners being as ready to work with the opposition. Unfortunately, so far we don't see any practical results from his and his team's contact with the opposition."
