Despite the approval of the resolution for a ceasefire in the region by the Security Council, large-scale confrontations continue, a situation that Secretary General Antonio Guterres considers unjust and unacceptable.

Precisely this weekend, the Security Council has met again to analyze what are the mechanisms to adopt, which are adjusted to the satisfaction of certain powers that have interests in Syria. All this so that the civilian population stops suffering the ravages of that war that takes 8 years.

In this regard, Bolivia, Kazakhstan, Cote D, Ivoire, Peru, among others, have pointed out the need for the international community to implement unanimous actions leading to the restoration of peace in Syria, if we take into account that this war, has claimed countless human lives.

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea, represented by Job Obiang Esono Mbengono, having appreciated the call of the meeting as a result of the critical situation on the ground, has once again highlighted the need for dialogue, warning about the difficulty of trying to find a solution to the Syrian problem without the support of the international community, which as suggested by Obiang Esono Mbengono, must show a solid unity, so that the final victory is the benefit of the Syrian people.

The meeting was attended by the video-conference of the special envoy for Syria, Estephan Demistura, who from Brussels has detailed the current situation in terms of negotiations on the ground, by the United Nations.
