Many Syrians have expressed hopes that UN special envoy Kofi Annan’s visit to Russia will help end the violence in Syria. Annan is in Moscow to discuss the conflict with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
A Damascus resident said, "Annan’s visit to Syria may change the situation. They might do something that can help Syria to end the crisis."
Tarek Al-Ahmad, Syrian Socialist Nationalist Party, said, "Annan’s meeting with Putin is aimed at avoiding the dangerous slope Syria and the whole region might slip down if military operations continue. We could witness a dangerous and bloody conflict in the whole region, between an army fighting inside the country and the remnants of armed groups everywhere."
