U.N. FINALISING PREPARATIONS FOR UPCOMING SYRIA PEACE TALKS

GENEVA, Switzerland, Feb 18 (NNN-SANA) – The UN Office of the Special Envoy for Syria, said that, final planning is underway, to prepare the ground ahead of the intra-Syria talks, which was expected to kick off on Feb 23.

“The special envoy is putting the finishing touches on the participation of the Syrian parties, in the initial round of intra-Syrian negotiations,” the special envoy’s spokesperson, Yara Sharif, told reporters.

“As you know, he issued invitations earlier this week. We can confirm that those invitations have been positively responded to. We can also confirm that consultations are continuing,” she added.

Participants are expected to convene with the UN special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, in Geneva’s UN headquarters, on Feb 23, 10 months after the last round of negotiations were put on hold, amid a humanitarian meltdown and ongoing violence.

Sharif confirmed that, the delegations are expected to arrive in the Swiss city, as early as, the beginning of next week.

UN-mediated talks are seeking to broker a political end to a conflict, which has killed as many as 400,000 people and displaced millions of others, since it started in Mar, 2011.

According to Sharif, upcoming negotiations “will be entirely guided by the UN Security Council Resolution 2254, which talks specifically about governance, a new constitution and elections in Syria.
