Antonio Guterres, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees speaks during a press conference at the Launch of the Regional Flash Appeal Following recent events in Libyan Arab Jamahiri

BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 A.M) – The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, welcomed the news of the Idlib buffer zone agreement on Tuesday.

“The Secretary-General stresses the need for swift action to address the root causes of the conflict and forge, at long last, a durable political solution in line with Security Council resolution 2254”, Guterres’ spokesperson said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan reached an agreement in Sochi to establish 10-15 demilitarized zone inside the Idlib Governorate in order to avoid further bloodshed in the province.

The UN’s Special Envoy to Syria, Stefan de Mistura, also welcomed the news as an important step towards a possible settlement in the war-torn nation.
