BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – Despite positive comments by the Turkish, Russian, and Iranian delegations on the results of the Astana peace conference, the U.N. envoy to Syria did not share the same optimism.

The U.N. envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, stated on Thursday that there had been “no tangible progress” regarding a new Syrian constitution.

According to de Mistura, there has been “no tangible progress in overcoming the 10-month stalemate on the composition of the constitutional committee.”

The meeting in Astana was “a missed opportunity to accelerate the establishment of a credible, balanced and inclusive, Syrian-owned, Syrian-led, U.N.-facilitated constitutional committee,” the statement said.

This latest Astana meeting will be the last peace conference de Mistura will attend, as he announced his resignation last month.

de Mistura…good riddance. Never did a d**n thing except push the (cabal) controlled UN agenda. The UN has no business being involved in the first place. What did the UN ever do in the last 7 years to help or support the Syrian people? He helped push the western agenda, which was war on Syria. “a missed opportunity to accelerate the establishment of a credible, balanced and inclusive, Syrian-owned, Syrian-led, U.N.-facilitated constitutional committee,” In whose eyes? Any agreement or settlement through the UN is a license to violate, immediately ignored by the Zionist cabal…but would be designed to hamstring Russia,… Read more »
