US Deputy Secretary met with Syrian Authority


Geneva, 20 October 2021 (TDI): Ethan Goldrich, the United States’ Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, met with Anas al-Abdeh, the head of the Syrian Negotiations Committee. The two discussed the significance of Security Council Resolution 2254, as the only feasible route to a long-term settlement to the Syrian crisis.

On 18 December 2015, the United Nations Security Council unanimously approved Resolution 2254. It demands a cease-fire and a political solution in Syria. This lays out the plan for Syria’s political transition. The resolution demanded that the parties immediately stop all assaults on civilian targets. It also encouraged all Member States to support efforts to establish a ceasefire and asked the United Nations to meet the parties for official talks in early January 2016.

This meeting also emphasizes that the only long-term solution to Syria’s present issue is an inclusive and Syrian-led political process. In that way, it satisfies the Syrian people’s genuine desires.
