Annan Heads Off to Tehran After Talks with Syrian President Assad

UN-Arab League special envoy Kofi Annan headed off to Tehran on Monday afternoon after holding talks earlier in the day with the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus in a last-ditch effort to salvage Syria peace plan. Annan has always wanted to engage Iran, one of the main supporters of Assad, in finding a solution to the Syrian crisis. IRNA reported that Mr. Annan is expected to arrive in Tehran later today.

UPDATE: Russia said today it is halting arms exports to Syria until the situation there calms down, the AP reported.

Russia not halting arms export. Russia will not deliver new types of weapons.
However, Russia will fulfill existing contracts and will continue to repair and supply spare parts for old equipment.
