Envoy: Not Much Progress Seen in Syria Peace Talks
Government and opposition representatives met face to face today
(Reuters)—Peace talks between the Syrian government and opposition are not making much progress, international mediator Lakhdar Brahimi said on Tuesday after a face-to-face meeting of the warring parties in Geneva.
As negotiations intended to end Syria's three-year-old war concluded the second day of this week's session, both sides had no advances to report.
Brahimi, a veteran diplomat charged with running the internationally sponsored talks, said he planned to report to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the Security Council within the next few weeks.
