UN Secretary General is very pleased with the work of his Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura and has no plans to sack him, Deputy Spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, Farhan Haq, told on Monday in comments on rumors about de Mistura’s resignation.
“The rumors are not true. Staffan de Mistura continues his job, the Secretary General is very pleased with the work that his envoy has been doing and gives him his full support,” the diplomat said.
He said the future of the envoy for Syria does not depend on the current round of talks between Damascus and the opposition. “No, it doesn’t depend on it,” he confirmed.
