U.N. Syria Envoy 'Ready to Go to Idlib' to Help Humanitarian Corridor

The U.N.'s Syria peace envoy offered Thursday to personally travel to Idlib to help ensure civilians can leave through a humanitarian corridor amid fears of full-scale military operations in the area.

"I am once again prepared … personally and physically to get involved myself, with the government cooperation this time… to ensure such a temporary corridor would be feasible and guaranteed for the people so that they can then return to their own places once this is over," Staffan de Mistura told reporters in Geneva.
