SEOUL - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday the Syrian people, not foreign powers, should decide their own fate.

International peace envoy Kofi Annan said in Beijing he would make public a response from the Syrian government to a six-point peace proposal, which calls for a cease-fire and humanitarian aid, and hoped to translate Syria's response into action.

Russia has said Annan has its full support and that his mission could be the last chance to avoid a protracted and bloody civil war but would need more time.

"I would like the decision on the fate of the Syrian state, society, political system and people to be taken not by the respected leaders of world powers, even by those acting in good faith, but by the Syrian people themselves, by all the levels of the Syrian society," Medvedev said at the end of a nuclear security summit in Seoul.
