Preview Language: Original
Staffan de Mistura said that he briefed the Security Council on his regional tour and what could be done at the current stage for the situation in Syria. He said he had an action plan for Syria, which involved using ISIS/Da’ish as a trigger for proposing the establishment of freeze zones/local ceasefire areas that could participate in political processes. Aleppo, an iconic city under pressure from both ISIS and the government, would be an ideal candidate.
