New tripartite talks on Syria to be held in Geneva

Jun 21 2013, 10:42pm CDT | by

United Nations, June 22 (IANS) A new session of tripartite talks on Syria involving Russia, the US and the UN will take place Tuesday in Geneva, deputy UN spokesman Eduardo del Buey said.

United Nations, June 22 — A new session of tripartite talks on Syria involving Russia, the US and the UN will take place Tuesday in Geneva, deputy UN spokesman Eduardo del Buey said.

"The United Nations delegation will be headed by the joint special representative for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi," Xinhua quoted del Buey as saying.

The goal of the conference will be to achieve a political solution to the conflict in Syria through a comprehensive agreement between the Syrian government and opposition.

Meanwhile, the Unicef said that soaring summer temperatures, overcrowding and worsening hygiene are the latest threats facing some four million children affected by the ongoing conflict in Syria, del Buey said.

"Without enough safe water and sanitation, it is likely that a rising number of children in Syria and those living as refugees around the region will fall sick with diarrhea and other diseases," he said.

"As the escalating conflict triggers larger population movements, Unicef has accelerated efforts to provide sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene services, reaching almost nine million people since the beginning of the year," he said.

Israel-Gaza Conflict: Here We Are Again

Jul 31 2014 8:22am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

To begin, I want to make my view clear that the attacks by both Israel and Hamas must be strongly condemned. Both sides have been displaying utter disregard for the right to life and a clear lack of interest in holding those responsible (including senior political and military leaders) accountable for grave human rights violations and violations of international law. This lack of accountability may have been a key factor in the resumption of hostili ...

School of Rockets: terrorists take advantage of the U.N.

Jul 30 2014 11:13am CDT | Source: Big Government

I see one of Joel's ten winners and losers from the Gaza War is the United Nations, dumped into the "loser" column because Hamas rockets have been found in schools built by the U.N. Relief Works Agency.  The first time one of these classroom ammo dumps was discovered, the U.N. feigned comical "Captain Renault" surprise that terrorists had been caught making use of its facilities.   Well, now we're up to the third discovery of ...
