UN Special Envoy Highlights Russia’s Efforts to End War in Syria

MOSCOW – The United Nations’ newly appointed special envoy to Syria stressed on Monday the importance of the efforts of the organization he represents and Russia in the search for a political solution to the conflict the Arab country has been struggling with.

Geir Pedersen, who took office earlier this month replacing Staffan de Mistura, made these remarks in Moscow, before a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

“We look very much forward to continue and deepen this relationship. And I believe that the UN and Russia together have a key role to play in moving forward the political process (in Syria),” Pedersen said.

Pedersen added that, before heading to Russia, he had been in Syria and Saudi Arabia, where he met representatives of both the Syrian government and the opposition.

He confirmed he would follow the resolutions the United Nations Security Council has adopted on the matter in his bid to end the war that erupted in Syria in 2011.

Lavrov, meanwhile, said his country hoped that the new UN special envoy continued to cooperate with warring parties, in accordance with the resolution 2254.

“So, we hope for continuity and your working experience both in the structures of your homeland and in international organizations, including the UN,” he said.

Pedersen’s visit to Russia came two days before the visit Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan is set to pay to Moscow, where he is scheduled to discuss with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin the decision of the United States to pull out its troops from Syria.
