In response to Brammertz's contention that Syria has "responded to all the commission's requests in a timely manner and in some instances comprehensive responses were provided," US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton [official website] told reporters Wednesday that Syria is not fully cooperating with the UN probe [statement; Reuters report]. According to Bolton, Brammertz's comments suggest that Syria gave many responses that were not comprehensive, though the report itself also said that cooperation with Syria has "developed further," and that their participation has been "generally satisfactory."
