Leaders agree to watered down version of Annan Syria peace plan

GENEVA –  Major powers meeting in Geneva have adopted a watered down version of special envoy Kofi Annan’s Syria plan that leaves open whether President Bashar Assad can be part of the transition government.

Annan said Saturday “it is for the people of Syria to come to a political agreement.”

June 28, 2012: Syrians inspect burned cars at the site of a blast in the Syrian capital Damascus.

He says “the hard work starts now. We must work together to implement what has been agreed.

Russia had refused to back a provision that would call for Assad to step down to make way for a unity government.
