UNITED NATIONS - There continue to be problems in Syria but an unarmed UN observer mission is deploying and the overall situation there is improving, Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said on Tuesday.

"Things are moving on in a positive direction. Many obstacles, but I think they can be overcome," Churkin told reporters after UN-Arab League mediator Kofi Annan gave the UN Security Council a bleak assessment of implementation of his peace plan aimed at ending 14 months of violence in Syria.
