UN Syria envoy still hopeful of peace truce
GENEVA: (APP) UN Syria envoy still hopeful of peace truce
As the Geneva-based talks went on recess, de Mistura told reporters that he wanted to open a fresh round "during the course of May", but said he was holding off on fixing a date because a fragile truce on the ground first needed to be "urgently revitalized."
"How can you have substantial talks when you have only news about bombing and shelling?" de Mistura said.
