UN envoy to Syria arrives in Damascus

The UN special envoy to Syria, Staffan De Mistura, arrived in Damascus on Sunday.

The next round of the Syrian peace talks is expected to kick off on April 13.

The role of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in a transitional period will be a key topic during the upcoming talks.

The opposition demands a transitional governing body with full executives without a role for Assad, while the Syrian government insists on a national unity government without compromise on Assad’s position.
