The UN delegation led by Kofi Annan has completed the second round of talks with Syrian President Assad. The envoy said the mutual agreement between the government and the opposition would be hard to reach, but he is optimistic.
“It’s going to be tough. It’s going to be difficult but we have to have hope,” he told reporters in Damascus after the meeting, but added that he is “optimistic for several reasons.”
Kofi Annan is lobbying for a ceasefire to create windows through which humanitarian aid could be delivered to civilians suffering in the conflict.
