Annan meets Syrian opposition

UN special envoy holds talks in Ankara as he awaits Damascus' response to his proposal to end violence in Syria.

    After talks with President Bashar al-Assad over the weekend, UN special envoy Kofi Annan has met Syrian opposition leaders in Ankara.

    Annan says he is expecting a response from Syria on a plan to end the conflict in the country.

    The details have not been made public, but just days ago, when the former Secretary General of the UN was in Damascus, he presented what he has described as concrete proposals to stop the violence that has accompanied the uprising against Assad's rule.
