GENEVA, Apr 5 – UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan expects both the Syrian government and the opposition to fully implement a ceasefire agreement by April 12, his spokesman said on Thursday.

“What we expect on April 10 is that the Syrian government will have completed its withdrawal from populated centres … and then we begin a 48-hour period during which there will be a complete cessation of all forms of violence by all parties,” Ahmad Fawzi told reporters.
