Russia has urged Syria to cooperate with the Arab League monitors and create the maximally comfortable conditions for their work.
This came in a statement by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a press conference following the talks with his Egyptian counterpart, Mohamed Kamel Amr, in Moscow earlier today.
Lavrov pointed out the need to guarantee the Arab League monitors access to all parts of the country so that they could form an unbiased opinion about the actual developments in Syria.
Meanwhile, monitors feel that the situation is satisfactory in the Syrian city of Homs, the site of the fiercest clashes between government forces and the armed opposition. Homs is the first city that the monitors have visited as part of their mission in Syria.
According to the chief delegate, the Sudanese General Ahmed Mustafa ad-Dabi, the situation was calm there on Tuesday.
