British FM urges implementation of Annan plan

(AP) / 17 July 2012

The British Foreign Secretary says implementing UN special envoy Kofi Annan’s peace plan is the ‘best hope’ for ending the civil war in Syria.

William Hague also insists that a Chapter 7 resolution by the United Nations Security Council is required to implement the plan and urged Russia and China to get on board.

He says the situation in Syria ‘is so grave and unpredictable’ but that he doesn’t think ‘any option should be ruled out for the future.’

Hague spoke Tuesday in Amman after talks with his Jordanian counterpart Nasser Judeh.

Earlier, Hague visited a Jordanian-run centre near the northern border to process Syrian refugees.

Jordan hosts 140,000 Syrian refugees and their numbers continue to grow.
