Damascus, SANA- State Minister for National Reconciliation Affairs Dr. Ali Haidar discussed on Wednesday with Khawla Matar, the Office Director of UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura in Damascus, the possibility of fruitful cooperation between the ministry and de Mistura’s team work.
During the meeting which was held in the ministry building, the minister pointed out to the necessity of engaging the ministry in some details of de Mistrura’ plan about freezing fighting in Aleppo since both of them are concerned in two basic files: local reconciliation and political dialogue.
The minister called for not letting de Mistrura’s plan be “confined to Aleppo which is linked to the foreign factor and the desire of certain sides to frustrate it.”
He said that the plan, which originated in Aleppo, is an experience which is meant to expand.
“Any achievement on the Syrian land, including de Mistura plan, is for all Syrians, ” the minister said.
For her part, Matar affirmed the importance of communication and coordination with the Ministry of National Reconciliation Affairs and broadening the scope of the plan to involve other Syrian areas besides Aleppo.
