Report: Russia favors boosting observers in Syria

DAMASCUS, Syria (CNN) - Russia's foreign minister is in favor of boosting the number of observers in Syria, saying Sunday he did not understand why the Arab League suspended its monitoring mission.

"We should like to understand why this useful instrument is treated in such a way," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, according to reports in Russian state media.

The Arab League announced Saturday it was suspending its mission because of a sharp increase in violence.

Monitors representing the 22-nation alliance were in Syria to determine whether President Bashar al-Assad's government was abiding by an agreement with the Arab League to end violence against anti-government protesters.

    Our opinions are just as valid as any other's opinions.
    When we say that we want the USA to stay out of it, we mean our troops.
    We mean out men and women who have no interest in what Big Business is doing, and will put their lives on the line because they feel it is their duty.
    The USA must stay out ofit, militarily-wise.
    Our opinions makes one LTAO? Our sincerity is real.
    Glad we could amuse you.
    Those opinions are no more ignorant than any one else's.
