Briefing the UN Security Council about the latest development of the Syrian situation, Pedersen on July 23, said that he has encouraged all sides to prepare for productive peace talks. “I hope that thereafter we will be able to proceed in subsequent sessions in a regular, business-like and substantive manner,” Pedersen added.
