Lynn Pascoe, UN Undersecretary-General, told the Security Council this morning that the ceasefire remains incomplete and measures taken by the government of Syria on the six-point plan are “clearly insignificant.”
It's essential that the government of Syria fully and immediately implement its obligations to stop using heavy weapons and to pull back military forces from population centres. Action on the other aspects of the six-point plan are no less important. Measures taken by the Syrian authorities to date - including on the release of arbitrarily detained persons and the respect for the right to demonstrate peacefully - are clearly insufficient."
