Syria - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (16.10.17)

Q - Given the United States’ new aggressive strategy toward Iran, is the idea of a contact group on Syria dead in the water?

A - Regardless of the US policy toward Iran, there is still a need for an international compromise in order to put an end to the war in Syria.

It is with this in mind that we are continuing our efforts to bring all countries that exert influence over Syria together within a contact group.
