Mehlis says Syria's co-operation with the UN has 'improved'

Just a day after questions were raised by Mehlis about Syria's co-operation with the UN, he has now praised Syria for making dramatic steps forwards.

"Making these five high-ranked intelligence officials available to the commission for questioning, available for extensive interviews outside Syria, which I think required a major effort on the Syrian part," he said.

"I think if you had asked someone in Syria a year ago could this happen, I think no one would have believed it," Mehlis said.

These are vital words: the UN Resolution passed in October threatens Syria with further action if it failed to co-operate with the UN.
