United Nations (UN) Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said that he expects intra-Syrian peace talks to resume on April 13, during a press conference in Geneva, Thursday.

De Mistura said that he is expecting the return to peace talks “around the early morning of the 13th or the evening of the 12th, which means that the talks, as far as we are concerned, are planned to start on the 13th.” He also hoped that this new round of talks will see “concrete” results “leading to a real beginning of a political transition.”

De Mistura also announced that he is embarking on a tour that will take him to Moscow, Damascus, Amman, Beirut and Tehran, saying that “the main purpose of this mini rushed tour" is "to see whether there is a critical understanding, or mass if you want, about what could be a framework of a political transition.”
