Discussions on Syria are going on: people are dying in the country at the same time

Negotiations over Syrian events are going by some formats in the world. Arab League, UN, Russia, USA, Turkey, China and other serious forces of the world are seeking for the solution for the Syrian crisis.

Arab League included Syrian theme in the agenda of its session which is held in the Iraq

According to Cbsnews.com three Syrian soldiers died in clashes with rebels in the central province of Homs on Wednesday. The magazine refers to the activist group. This event took place just a day after President Bashar Assad said he has accepted a UN plan to resolve the country’s crisis.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the fighting broke out when government forces tried to enter the town of Rastan, which is in the hands of army defectors. The activist group also reported clashes in the Deir el-Zour province along the Iraqi border and said government troops had fired mortars at the city of Homs.

Clashes in Syria started a year ago. The opposition claims Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must resign and the latter still manages to stand it. According to UN more than 8.000 people have already been killed as a result of these clashes.

Syrian side announced on Tuesday that Assad accepted a peace plan put forward by U.N.-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan. The plan calls for Damascus to immediately stop troop movements and use of heavy weapons in populated areas and to commit to a daily two-hour halt in fighting to allow humanitarian access and medical evacuations.

Kofi Annan said Tuesday during a visit to Beijing that he had received Chinese backing for his plan. As international condemnation of Assad has grown, Russia and China have protected him from censure by the U.N. Security Council. But Russia, too, has endorsed Annan’s plan.

As the Associated Press writes before Arab heads of state began their Thursday summit in the Iraqi capital, Syria sharply rejected any measures they take. A Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Jihad Makdessi, said Damascus would “not deal with any initiative” that might come out of the 22-member Arab League.

As it is announced the rejection reflected Damascus‘ refusal to work with the League after the pan-Arab body suspended Syria‘s membership as punishment for the bloody crackdown on protesters demanding the ouster of President Bashar Assad.
