‘No drama, no walkouts’ and no progress in Syria peace talks

GENEVA – As Syrian peace talks were adjourned in Geneva after 10 days, the UN mediator said he was encouraged that there was “no drama, no walkouts” — but, while a shaky truce has continued to hold across the war-torn country, there was also no visible sign of progress on a lasting settlement.

The ultimate goal for Staffan de Mistura, the UN envoy, is a plan for political transition in Syria. In the wake of the Brussels bombings — claimed by Islamic State group, which has flourished in Syria’s conflict — de Mistura sought to focus international attention on the next-step, saying that to defeat “terrorism, you have to find a political solution in Syria.”
