Syria talks to resume on March 9

Geneva, March 2 (IANS) The office of the Special Envoy for Syria on Tuesday said that Staffan de Mistura plans to resume intra-Syrian talks on March 9.

“In order to allow adequate time to address logistical and practical matters, the Special Envoy will now resume the talks on March 9, 2016,” Xinhua quoted a statement as saying.

The diplomat had initially hoped to resume talks on March 7 after UN-led talks seeking to broker a political solution between Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government and opposition forces came to a premature standstill on February 3 after parties failed to see eye to eye on a number of issues.
