The 7th round in the Geneva talks held under the lead of the United Nations (UN) to develop a “political solution” to the civil war in Syria have ended in failure as well.
UN’s Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura and his team held a series of meetings with a regime delegation led by Bashar Al Jaafari and “opposition” groups” who joined the talks under the title High Council of Negotiations.
Mistura held talks with the parties as per the UN Security Council’s Decree No.2254 in 2015 and focused on four subjects: Interim government, new constitution, elections and the war against terror.
“PARTIES COULDN’T BE SAT AROUND THE SAME TABLE”
Mistura failed to bring the parties to the same table for the four days of talks. After the 7th round was finished, he held a press conference and made some comments.
De Mistura also announced that the 8th round of the talks that ended again without reaching any resolution will be held by early September.
THE ONLY FORCE WITH A PROJECT IS KURDS
On the other hand, throughout the talks the regime delegation refused to discuss an interim period without Assad and the groups that attended the talks under the guise of the opposition insisting on exactly such a period plays a large role in the failure to achieve any progress.
The Kurds, both the largest military and democratic political force and the only force with a democratic project for the future of Syria, not being invited to the talks, during which parties pushed their own agendas forth, is another reason why the meetings are not fruitful.
AS POLITICAL INTERESTS ARE RACED…
During the Geneva talks, which are supposedly held to look for a political solution in Syria but are little more than a race of political interests, the civil war in Syria continued with all urgency. According to international human rights reports and UN reports, in the 6-year-long war more than 320.000 people lost their lives and over 5 million people were forced to leave their lands.
