UN special envoy de Mistura: A farewell it is with Regret that

More than four years of de Mistura, the UN special envoy for Syria. To said his farewell to the Diplomat that the United Nations would abandon the Syrian people, never.

At the end of the things that happen never, or almost never, in the security Council to pass. There is not only applause for the outgoing UN Syria Special representative Staffan de Mistura - no, he is out the whole Round of the table, to say goodbye to the country representatives with a handshake - after a long and difficult journey together.

Selfies and last talks did not end the session, in the de Mistura after four and a half years, once again, have to say it is progressing as planned. It has not yet been accomplished, namely, to form a Committee for a new Constitution. The dispute over its composition. The de Mistura, to do him very sorry: "We need to try again, to find a common goal, to act together, if 2019 is really to be a turning point for Syria."

Syrian people have enough

but it also speaks to the eight years of the war: the Syrian ruler Bashar al-Assad has won thanks to Russian help more and more ground. Of all of the above, the security Council adopted already three years ago, is nothing in sight: a peace roadmap for Syria talks, ceasefire, free and fair elections.

The Syrian people have suffered enough, so in December 2015, the former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon. However, the actually binding Resolution proved in the further course of the war as null and void.

at the beginning of January-de Mistura passes his Post

The current withdrawal of U.S. troops is likely to help Assad and his Russian allies. But no, not want to this most pressing of all questions de Mistura speak to the security Council - would be neither the political nor the military consequences of the hasty, he says.

in early January, the Syria passes Pedersen-expert, then his Post at the Norwegian diplomats Geir. He is the fourth Diplomat to cut the Gordian knot; a conflict, because Assad has been largely resolved in his spirit. Until that Changes, he will give no press conference, so de Mistura:

"Should I give him tips and recommendations to my experiences? What should be done? Could be done? What has not been done? And the public? That would not be fair to my successor, I respect and is a friend."

Syrian people have always and always

De Mistura has appealed already to Go, but a question back to get him - whether there was any hope for the Syrian people suffered. It was clear to him, with all the Back and forth of the war: the Syrian people have again and again suffered, as de Mistura.

At the same time, he, de Mistura had assured that the United Nations would not let the people down. At least you can with food and Vaccines to help, with weapons still stands.

This is not of course enough, but the Oh-so-thoughtfully quiet Diplomat slams his fist on the lectern: the United Nations would abandon the Syrian people, never.
