UN envoy expects Syria talks to yield ‘clear roadmap’

The UN special envoy for Syria says he expects the talks on Syria to result in a clear roadmap, if not an agreement, to resolve the crisis in the war-ravaged country.

Staffan de Mistura made the comments at a news conference on the UN-sponsored Syria peace talks in Geneva, Switzerland on Monday before the Syria peace talks slated to be held later in the day.

The UN envoy said the talks set to begin Monday would be the first of three rounds.

He said the negotiation will be inclusive, adding that all Syrians should be given a chance to be heard.

De Mistura also warned that the only “plan B” that he knows of for Syria is a return to war, adding that this alternative is an even worse conflict than the present one.
