"I leave satisfied…we did our best in Syria": General MoodListen /
The Chief UN Observer in Syria, Major General Robert Mood says the mission is irrelevant without a political process.
He told a news conference in Damascus that the Syrian government and opposition must be willing to make the necessary concessions and sit at the negotiating table.
The mandate of the UN Supervision Mission in Syria (UNSMIS) ends 20 July.
"I leave satisfied that I, and some 400 brave women and men, have done our best, under very challenging circumstances. We shifted our posture more than once to accommodate the changes in the security situation, yet still maintain the ability to intervene whenever possible." (Duration: 26")
