The situation in the Middle East, and in particular in Syria, continues to concern the member States of the United Nations Security Council, which are seeking a solution for a hypothetical way out of the crisis; despite the ceasefire resolution, the continues confrontations on a large scale are ongoing, in a situation that the General Secretary, Antonio Guterres , considers unfair and unacceptable.
During the meeting, Bolivia, Kazakhstan, Ivory Coast and Peru, among others, pointed out the need for the international community to take unanimous action leading to the re-establishment of peace in Syria, if it is taken into account that this war has cost the lives of an innumerable number of people over eight years.
The Republic of Equatorial Guinea, represented by Job Obiang Esono Mbengono, once again highlighted the need for dialogue, warning of the difficulty to resolve the Syrian problem without the support of the international community, which must, according to his suggestions, show solid unity, so that the final victory is beneficial for the population.
The meeting featured a video link with the special envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, who from Brussels gave a detailed account of the current situation with regards to the negotiations on the ground, by the UN.
