Syria: United Nations Security Council approves resolution on advance team of monitors

United Nations Security Council has just approved a resolution on Syria, on a 15 – 0 vote, to deploy up to 30 monitors as an advance team to monitor the implementation the six-point Annan-plan. More to come after I have analysed what has transpired. What we can note is that Russia and China for the first time did not veto. Nor did the abstain. This could be the game changer we have been looking for.
