Remain united for Syrians, UN envoy de Mistura urges Security Council

Addressing the problems plaguing Syria and bring years of brutal fighting to an end, requires further “genuine effort” on the part of influential countries, to talk to each other and work constructively, the veteran United Nations Special Envoy for Syria has said, UN News reported.

In his last briefing to the Security Council in the job, Staffan de Mistura reminded the 15-member body of the mandate it entrusted to the UN, to facilitate a Syrian-owned, Syrian-led roadmap for peace.

That process, he said, is “the only way to enable the Syrians to determine their own future” and called on Council members to demonstrate a “renewed sense of common purpose” and concerted action, if 2019 is finally to be the “real turning point” after more than eight years of war.
