UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres praised the outcome of the intra-Syria talks at the Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi, during a press conference in the New York UN Headquarters, Friday. «I want to express my appreciation for the Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and the way the Russian federation engaged with United Nations. The congress concluded with a statement fully in line... Еще with that common understanding», said Guterres. However, Guterres reiterated that political progess must also be accompanied by progress on the ground in Syria, yet «in the last two months, not a single convoy of life saving relief has reached the area, no medical supplies, no food. Humanitarian aid is not getting in, and people suffering bad health conditions are not getting out». According to the Secretary General, UN Special Envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura will draw on the outcome of the talks in Sochi to work towards full implementation of Security Council resolution 2254, which calls for a ceasefire and political settlement in Syria. The Syrian National Dialogue Congress took place between January 29 and 30. Around 1,600 delegates representing a wide range of Syria's political forces participated in the peace talks.
