De Mistura

Geneva, SANA- UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura on Tuesday called for exerting all possible efforts to solve the crisis in Syria politically and to ensure the success of the Syrian-Syrian dialogue in Geneva.

De Mistura, in an interview with Swiss television RTS, said that he would meet with “different delegations” on Wednesday without giving specific details about these meetings.

He added “We want to achieve tangible results regarding this dialogue which we hope that would lead to a ceasefire which is possible at the current time.”

Answering a question on whether the negotiations in Geneva could fail, de Mistura replied “It is possible, but we must try to ensure that it wouldn’t be a failure.”

He added “If there is a failure this time after we tried twice at conferences in Geneva, for Syria there will be no more hope. We must absolutely try to ensure that there is no failure.”

Earlier, Head of the Syrian Arab Republic’s delegation to the Syrian-Syrian dialogue in Geneva Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari stressed after the delegation met de Mistura that “The delegation of the Syrian Arab Republic is committed to the text of the invitation letter addressed by de Mistura and that of the resolution no. 2254, whereas the other party is dealing with this matter like amateurs and not professional politicians.”
