He hailed Caro’s role in supporting settlement efforts, Hafez added.

Shoukry, for his part, underlined his country’s keenness to advance the political process in Syria and end the political “stalemate.”

He underlined the need to prioritize Syria’s national interest among the various concerned parties to end the over a decade-long crisis and its “humanitarian impacts on the brotherly Syrian people.”

In January, Shoukry called on the Syrian government to take all the measures necessary to be reinstated to the Arab League.
