The resumption of the intra-Syrian negotiations facilitated by the UN Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura in Geneva on Wednesday 13 April 2016 is “an encouraging step”, EU High Representative Federica Mogherini said in a statement on Thursday. “Both delegations have the responsibility” to “not waste the opportunity to save lives and to put Syria on the road to peace”.
Mogherini adds: “We expect the Syrian parties and their backers to engage in the process on three key elements that were agreed by all of us in the International Syria Support Group and endorsed by UN Security Council resolutions 2254 and 2268: Firstly respect, consolidation and expansion of the cessation of hostilities; secondly, the consolidation and expansion of the humanitarian access; and thirdly, most crucial, the urgent start of the political transition, with a real willingness to reach a solution”.
