  • Britain proposes 30 days extension to UN Syria mission-diplomats

    UNITED NATIONS, July 19 (Reuters) - Britain has drafted a new resolution to extend a U.N. mission in Syria "for a final period of 30 days" and it could be voted on later on Thursday, diplomats said.

    The four-paragraph resolution would simply roll over the mission of 300 unarmed military observers and some 100 civilian staff, the diplomats, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said.
