28 de novembro de 2017

New York – The reconstruction of Syria will cost at least USD 250 billion, said on Monday (27) the United Nations secretary-general’s special envoy for the country, Staffan de Mistura. He told the Security Council members that the war of the past six years drove half of Syria’s population out of their homes.

The envoy said he believes the moment of truth in dialogue has come, referencing the talks between the parties to the conflict that are slated to begin this Tuesday (28) in Geneva.
