DOHA - Arab delegates met UN-Arab League special envoy Kofi Annan in Qatar on Tuesday and reiterated their backing for his peace plan though admitting that it would take some time to work.

A six-day-old truce has held in some parts of Syria since President Bashar Assad pledged to honor it last week, and a small observer mission went to the country this week to oversee the ceasefire.

"All parties should support Mr. Annan and his mission," Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby said in a statement at the meeting in Doha.

"We emphasize two points: full and immediate implementation has not happened, and two, Mr. Annan's mission is a political one and therefore will take some time and will require continuous pressure on the Syrian government as well as support of the permanent members of the Security Council and the continuous passing of resolutions by the council," Elaraby said.
