Syrian conflict is two year old and the talks related to peace are long delayed now. Effects of Syrian War are as follows:
• The war have resulted in death of more than 100000 people
• Almost 9 million people were homeless.
• Countless people were missing and detained.
• Unacceptable burdens on Syrian neighbors.
The UN secretary Ban concluded that “The conflict in Syria has raged for too long. It would be unforgivable not to seize this opportunity to bring an end to the suffering and destruction it has caused,” So this is high time when the Syrian Government and the negotiating party must reach some relieving conclusions for the benefit of the Syrian people.
