Description:
GENEVA, SWITZERLAND (AUGUST 30, 2018) (REUTERS) UNITED NATIONS BUILDING UNITED NATIONS SPECIAL ENVOY FOR SYRIA, STAFFAN DE MISTURA, ARRIVING AT NEWS CONFERENCE JOURNALISTS LISTENING (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNITED NATIONS SPECIAL ENVOY FOR SYRIA, STAFFAN DE MISTURA, SAYING: "There is a perfect storm based on warning, counter-warnings which is gathering around and due to the dilemma, which is a true dilemma on how to defeat terrorists in Idlib and at same time avoid affecting a huge number of civilians. So, while we are aware that efforts and discussion are taking place to avoid the worst-case scenario, one cannot ignore that miscalculations may indeed occur leading to unforeseen escalation and we are all very much concerned. We already went through that in the past and we need to make sure that this will not happen again." CAMERAMAN FILMING NEWS CONFERENCE IN PROGRESS (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNITED NATIONS SPECIAL ENVOY FOR SYRIA, STAFFAN DE MISTURA, SAYING: "So, the issue of avoiding the potential use of chemical weapons is indeed crucial and would be totally unacceptable. We all are aware that both the government and Al-Nusra have the capability to produce weaponised chlorine." NEWS CONFERENCE IN PROGRESS (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNITED NATIONS SPECIAL ENVOY FOR SYRIA, STAFFAN DE MISTURA, SAYING: "The estimates of the Al-Quaida, Al-Nusra, whatever name they want to call themselves is, more or less, around 10,000 of them, plus families. Now, the people in Idlib larger area are 2.9 million people. So, there is and there can be no justification in order to fight rightfully terrorists to not avoid using heavy weapons in densely populated areas." NEWS CONFERENCE IN PROGRESS (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNITED NATIONS SPECIAL ENVOY FOR SYRIA, STAFFAN DE MISTURA, SAYING: "One avenue would be to, one, not accelerate military escalation and give a little bit more time for this kind of discussion. Two, allow and facilitate a credible, credible humanitarian corridor to allow civilian population to temporarily evacuate to a safer area, but that area most likely is under government control, so that requires a constructive, effective government support and a U.N. presence. If that takes place, then that would give more time also for the three guarantors to work out something that would avoid the worst-case scenario."
