“The members of the Security Council looked forward to the early resumption of the intra-Syrian negotiations and encouraged the Syrian parties to return to talks in good faith and to engage constructively and without preconditions on the agenda set out by the UN special envoy when talks resume,” the 15-nation UN body is cited as saying in a press statement. The fourth round of Syrian peace talks ended on Friday with no breakthrough achieved towards reaching a political solution to end the country’s six-year war. They further welcomed the announcement by Special Envoy de Mistura of a clear agenda for future negotiations. 
The Syrian conflict, which enters its seventh year this month, has reportedly killed nearly 500,000 people, wounded more than a million, and displaced nearly half the population. This bloody war inflicted indescribable sufferings upon Syrian nations mainly women and children, the rights and dignity of whom were violated in the worst possible way. Syrians bore the brunt of radical ideology of the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). 
 
The UN seeks to bring the two warring sides to the table of negotiation, except for the ISIL and Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, so as to put an end to the unmitigated violence and bloodshed going on in Syria. However, the talks have not come to fruition yet and the two warring factions, who are excluded from the peace process, are most likely to act as whistleblowers through intensifying their insurgency and expanding their destructive role. Indeed, all warring parties are in pursuit of a political goal and the factions that are not involved in the talks also want a share in the government in case of peace agreement. Otherwise, they will continue violating human rights and undermining democracy to trigger a sense of mistrust between state and nation and create political turmoil. 
Afghan nation has been embroiled in the very political problem following the post-Taliban administration. The Taliban guerrillas inflicted heavy casualties upon Afghan soldiers and civilians and still do so for not having a political share in the government.
