SYRIAN GOVERNMENT DELEGATION RETURNS TO GENEVA PEACE TALKS
GENEVA, Switzerland- The delegation of the Syrian government, headed by its representative to the UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari, met and held discussion with UN Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, in the UN’s Geneva headquarters on Monday.
A source close to the Syrian government delegation, said that, the delegation arrived in Geneva on Sunday, to participate in the second stage of the new round of UN-led Intra-Syrian peace talks.
The government’s delegation left the talks on Dec 2, for a weekend break and “further consultations” and did not return back to Geneva on Dec 5, the day set by the UN to resume the talks.
The UN envoy had met the Syrian opposition delegation, for several bilateral talks last week, during the government delegation’s absence.
De Mistura said earlier, at the beginning of this round of the talks, that, the biggest obstacle now was “trust.”
The new round of the UN-led Syrian peace talks, started on Nov 28, and has been scheduled to be held here in Geneva till Dec 15.
