UN SPECIAL ENVOY URGES SYRIA SIDES TO ENGAGE AT GENEVA ROUND

Geneva, – UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura called on warring sides there to prepare to engage in substantive political discussions at the next round of talks starting on Thursday, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

The talks – expected to last until April 1 – will focus on governance, constitutional change, UN-sponsored elections and counter-terrorism measures, UN spokeswoman Alessandra Vellucci said in a statement read out at a UN briefing.

Syrian government and opposition delegations to the fourth round last month have confirmed their attendance, she said.

De Mistura has urged all sides “to do the necessary preparations in advance of the fifth round to be ready to engage substantively and proactively on the substance of all four baskets on the agenda in parallel”, she added. (QNA)
