Geneva Talks Must Resume to Keep Syria Intact, Warn UN and EU

The United Nations envoy for Syria and the EU foreign affairs commissioner warned that the Geneva talks on a political agreement to end the conflict must resume to ensure that the country does not end up partitioned.

Speaking a high level panel at the UN General Assembly, Staffan de Mistura said that progress in establishing a series of conflict-free zones in negotiations in Astana had made the issue of a political settlement all the more urgent.

“Are the deconfliction zones going to be limited for six months or do they risk becoming defacto partion of Syria? The answer is no,” the veteran diplomat declared.
