The UN Security Council has been briefed on the crisis in Syria by international envoy Kofi Annan. Western powers, including the United Kingdom and the United States, say they want Chapter 7 sanctions included in the plan and are drafting a resolution. Moscow has opposed any militarily enforceable resolution. Syrian government officials say they support Annan’s six-point plan, but that its success depends on international commitment.

Bashar Ja’afari, Syria’s ambassador to UN, said, "The success of Mr. Kofi Annan’s plan depends greatly on seizing, de-arming and funding of the armed groups in Syria and the necessity of the presence of an International commitment and an honest political will towards implementing fully the six-point plan of Mr. Kofi Annan."

Alexander Pankin, Russia’S deputy ambassador to UN, said, "We trust the Security Council will come to a consensus agreement on how to help Special Envoy Kofi Annan and that is not to be necessarily done under Chapter 7. Chapter 7 is the last resort."
