Mr. Annan declined to echo the opinion that Russia and Iran are barriers to Syria’s peace progress and made no mention of those countries which have provided weapons and financial resources to Syrian opposition groups. Annan will arrive in Syria today to discuss his six-point peace plan with Syrian leaders. This is Annan’s third trip to Syria since clashes broke out here.
