ANKARA - UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan said he was expecting to hear on Tuesday from the Syrian government on "concrete proposals" which he made to end nearly a year of violence during his weekend talks with Syrian President Bashar Assad.




Annan has not disclosed what those proposals entailed.




Syria's ambassador to Moscow said on Monday, however, that the discussion between Assad and Annan had echoed 'five principles' for a Syrian settlement agreed by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Arab League foreign ministers in Cairo on Saturday.


Speaking after meeting Annan, Syrian National Council (SNC) leader Burhan Ghalioun said the aim was for a political and diplomatic solution, otherwise foreign governments would deliver on promises to supply weapons to rebel forces.
