April 25, 2019 at 17:47 GMT +00:00 · Published

UN Special Envoy for Syria Geir Pedersen spoke discussed the settlement of the long lasting Syrian conflict and the need to rebuild Syrian society on the sidelines of the 12 intra-Syrian talks in Nur-Sultan on Thursday.

"I will not go into any discussion on who is to be blamed for the destruction in Syria. I think what we need to agree on is that there is a need to rebuild trust in Syrian society, to bring the Syrian communities together again and then to rebuild the country in a manner so that the refugees can come back and that the IDPs can come back," said Pedersen.

The two-day Syrian talks are attended by representatives of the Syrian government, Syrian opposition, and the Syrian ceasefire guarantor countries, as well as observers from the UN and Jordan.
