UN Syria Envoy Says 'Substantive' Talks to Begin March 14

A cease-fire in Syria now approaching two weeks is still holding

SIRIA
2 years ago

The U.N.’s Syria envoy says delegates will begin arriving in Geneva Wednesday for “substantive, deeper” talks between the Syrian government and opposition representatives set to begin on March 14.

Staffan de Mistura, enviado especial del secretario general de la ONU para Siria, conversa el viernes 26 de febrero de 2016 con la prensa sobre el inicio del alto el fuego en Siria y la próxima reanudación de las conversaciones entre el gobierno y la oposición en la sede europea de la ONU en Ginebra, Suiza. De Mistura dijo que el inicio la reanudación del diálogo está previsto para el 7 de marzo si “persiste en gran medida” el alto el fuego en el país. (Martial Trezzini/Keystone vía AP)

Staffan de Mistura says the talks will once again be “proximity” talks — meaning indirect talks with the parties in separate rooms and the envoy shuttling between them.
He says the talks are expected to last for about 10 days before breaking up for a recess.

Speaking at a press conference in Geneva, de Mistura said a cease-fire in Syria now approaching two weeks is still holding “by and large,” and was open-ended as far as the U.N. was concerned.
