In an interview, De Mistura said the parties had looked at ways, "to revitalise and launch the Geneva process and the follow-up to Sochi."

The UN special envoy also discussed providing humanitarian aid to civilians trapped in Eastern Ghouta.

"The UN in Damascus and in the whole region is ready to intervene with humanitarian aid as soon as possible," assured de Mistura.
