Intra-Syrian Negotiations

Geneva, Switzerland
From 20 February 2017

A spokesman for the United Nations Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura has confirmed that the intra-Syrian talks will begin on 23 February at the Palais des Nations in Geneva.

Delegations are expected to arrive in Geneva on 20 February to engage in preparatory talks ahead of the formal opening.
The revival of the Syria talks was decided by the Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General for Syria, Staffan de Mistura last December in order to build on the momentum created by Security Council resolutions allowing for the deployment of neutral UN observers to oversee civilian evacuations from Aleppo after Syrian troops re-took the city. The renewed commitment to the fragile ceasefire by Russia, Iran and Turkey at recent talks in the Kazakh capital, Astana, are seen as potentially paving the way for further advances ahead of the U.N. Talks.

All media need to be accredited by the United Nations Office at Geneva.

Requests for accreditation should be sent to this address
