Covering the Intra-Syrian talks
The Intra-Syrian Talks take place at the United Nations in Geneva (Palais des Nations).
Representatives of the mass media – press, photo, radio and television – need to be accredited
by the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) in order to cover these Talks.
A handbook (download it here
) provides some useful information to help you do your job as effectively as possible, including rules on media coverage and access to services at the Palais des Nations.
The Intra-Syrian Talks will be held in private, but every effort will be made to keep you informed of key developments as information becomes available. You will be informed of scheduled press conferences and stakeouts as early as possible by e-mail, keeping in mind that these could sometimes be organized with little advance notice.
Please refer regularly to the page of the Syrian Peace Process
on the UN Office at Geneva website for summaries and transcripts of statements and press briefings by the Office of the UN Special Envoy for Syria, the UN Secretary-General and the Security Council, as well as updates on the humanitarian situation.
