UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura has lauded Iran, Russia, and Turkey for the establishment of a trilateral mechanism to support the ceasefire in Syria.

De Mistura made the remarks on Tuesday after Syrian peace talks wrapped up in Kazakhstan's capital of Astana, with the three countries agreeing to work out a trilateral accord with the goal of supervising the ceasefire in the Arab country to guarantee all parties’ commitment to the truce and prevent possible violations of the ceasefire.

After thanking the government of Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev for hosting the talks, de Mistura went on to express his gratitude to the sponsors of the meeting, “Iran, the Russian Federation and Turkey, for their determination to build on their achievements of last month when they assumed the responsibility of guarantors of a ceasefire regime in Syria.”

The three countries also stressed that there was no military solution to the crisis in Syria, and it can be only resolved through a political process based on full implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254.

De Mistura also stated that the UN is prepared to help the parties to develop the trilateral mechanism, and ensure that it moves towards bolstering the quality of the ceasefire.

“Let me commend Russia, Turkey and Iran for their decision to establish a trilateral mechanism to observe and ensure full compliance with the ceasefire,” he added.
