Progress on Syria ceasefire but no guarantee of success: UN envoy

UN envoy

GENEVA: Syria’s ceasefire has been showing clear signs of progress, the top UN envoy for the war-ravaged country said Thursday, warning though that there was no guarantee it would succeed.


“The situation on the ground could be summarised as fragile. Success is not guaranteed, but progress has been visible,” Staffan de Mistura told reporters in Geneva as the cessation of hostilities entered its sixth day.
