United Nations Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura “deeply regrets” the US suspension on Monday of talks with Russia on how to end the violence in Syria, but said the world body would “continue to push energetically for a political solution” to end the war.
“The UN will never abandon the Syrian people to a destiny of endless violent conflict,” de Mistura’s office said in a statement.

The United States broke off talks with Russia on Monday on implementing a ceasefire agreement on Syria and accused Moscow of not living up to its commitments under the Sept. 9 deal to halt the violence and deliver humanitarian aid to besieged communities.
The confirmation that the U.S.-Russian talks on Syria have collapsed suggests that there is little hope, if any, of a diplomatic solution emerging anytime soon to end a 5-1/2-year-old civil war that has killed hundreds of thousands and displaced 11 million.
“The United States is suspending its participation in bilateral channels with Russia that were established to sustain the cessation of hostilities,” U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby said in a statement.
