UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura warned of the possibility that ISIS terrorist group would consolidate its positions in Syria after the US forces’ planned withdrawal from the country.

De Mistura, who is set to end his tenure in early 2019, said the US decision to withdraw its troops from Syria will strike a blow against Kurds in the first place.

Kurds are a very important formation in Syria, and under no circumstances should we ignore it, the UN envoy said.

De Mistura noted that the US can continue its participation in settling the Syrian crisis through diplomatic action.
