ROME, December 7. /TASS/. Italy provides all-round support for the United Nations’ role in the Syrian settlement and notes Russia’s constructive role in the search for a solution of the conflict, Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni said after a meeting with UN special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura on Monday.
"We fully support the United Nations’ role in the Syrian settlement process. One should note the leading efforts of the United States and Russia’s constructive approach to the search for a solution," Gentiloni said.
He recalled that just two months ago it seemed that there was no positive development in sight.
"But the two meetings on Syria in Vienna yielded a good result," he said.
De Mistura welcomed the involvement of all leading regional actors in the Syrian settlement process.
"Just three months ago it was hard to imagine Jordan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iran would meet at the negotiating table. This is sure sign the process is past the dead point," de Mistura said.
On January 10 the Italian capital will host the international conference called Mediterranean Dialogues, which will focus on Syrian and Libyan crises and migration. Three hundred delegates from 40 countries of the region will be taking part.
