UN Envoy Says Syria Attacks Aim To Spoil Talks

The UN special envoy for Syria, early Thursday condemned the latest “terrorist attacks” in Damascus on the sixth anniversary of the Syrian conflict, saying they are “plainly designed to spoil attempts to sustain political talks”.

Staffan de Mistura said in a statement the attacks claimed the lives of innocent civilians and again urged respect for the ceasefire in Syria, which “is being challenged by violations on the ground”.

The statement was issued in Geneva after Syrian state media reported two suicide bomb attacks killed at least 31 people and wounded dozens more in the capital.

The UN Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura announced last week that he expects to convene intra-Syrian negotiations on 23 March.
