UN envoy outlines ‘possibilities for progress’ in Syria next year
Now is the time to explore whether a political process in Syria can meaningfully move forward in 2022, UN Special Envoy Geir Pedersen told the Security Council on Monday.
The UN envoy reported that he has been highlighting these dynamics in all his engagements with those who can help end the fighting.
Mr. Pedersen has met recently with the Syrian Government in Damascus, and with Foreign Ministers from the region. He also briefed American, European, Arab and Turkish envoys when they met in Brussels.
Mr. Pedersen said it was important that delegations not only table texts but be ready to commit to revising them, in light of discussions held over recent weeks in Damascus and Istanbul.
