At UN, Revised Syria Draft Requires Assad Consultations

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, April 13 -- The revised Syria draft resolution produced late April 13, and obtained by Inner City Press, does NOT make "demands" on Syria's Assad government. Rather, in Paragraphs 2, 4, 6, 7 and 8 it "calls up" the government, and where applicable "all parties," to perform certain acts.

It "decides to authorize an advance team of up to 30 unarmed military observers... to begin to report on the implementation of a full cessation of armed violence."

The full mission, it acknowledges, would be "subject to a sustained cessation of armed violence in all its forms by all parties" and only "after consultations between the Secretary-General and the Syrian government."

  This is what has been circulated back to Security Council members' capitals, in the run up to a Saturday 11 am meeting. Can the resolution be adopted in this form? Watch this site.
