UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura is closely following the situation with the US missile strikes on Syria's military airfield and holding consultations with the relevant parties, a member of Mistura’s office told Sputnik on Friday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha'irat near Homs late Thursday. US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on Damascus.

“The SE [Special Envoy] is following closely the situation, including through consultations with relevant interlocutors.  The UN will provide additional comments as more information is brought to bear,” a member of Mistura’s office said.
