UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura gave his thoughts on the ongoing conflict in the country while speaking at a TRT event called 'Envisioning Peace and Security in a Fragmented World' in Istanbul on Thursday.

During his talk, Mistura said that a misunderstanding between regional and international powers in Syria would be potentially catastrophic.
