(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is expected to announce later today the appointment of UN veteran Staffan de Mistura as the new UN Special Representative for Syria, a UN official said on Wednesday.

De Mistura, 67, will succeed Joint Special Representative Lakhdar Brahimi who resigned in late May out of frustration for the Security Council's failure to stop the war in Syria, now in its fourth year.

The announcement came after Ban held a meeting with Syrian Ambassador Bashar Ja'afari to seek Damascus approval.


De Mistura was appointed Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs in the Italian Cabinet headed by then Mario Monti.

He also served the UN in various posts, including Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Iraq (2007-2009) and Afghanistan (2010-2011), Personal Representative of the Secretary-General for Southern Lebanon (2001-2004), and Director of the UN Information Center in Rome (2000-2001).

His work also took him to other trouble-spots, including Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan and the former Yugoslavia.
