Live blog: Syria violence deadline


Russia's foreign minister this morning urged the Syrian government and the opposition to implement Annan's peace plan.

Moscow has long supported President Assad against what they have described as a foreign-led insurgency, but FM Sergei Lavrov this morning said that the country could be "more active" and "more decisive" in implementing Annan's plan.

Lavrov also called on foreign powers to influence opposition groups to adhere to the ceasefire.
