UN Syria envoy sees quick restart of peace talk

The UN special envoy on Syria said on Monday that the cessation of hostilities accord reached by Russia and the United States could allow a quick resumption of negotiations on a political process to end the civil war.
"We can now relaunch very soon the political process which is needed to end this conflict," Staffan de Mistura said in an email to Reuters.
De Mistura suspended talks on getting political negotiations on Feb. 3 as Syrian government forces, backed by intense Russian air strikes, advanced against rebel fighters north of Aleppo.
