Geneva: Syria`s main opposition group met formally Monday for the first time with UN special envoy Staffan de Mistura in Geneva for talks aimed at ending the country`s civil war, an AFP reporter said.

The High Negotiations Committee is however refusing for now to enter into indirect negotiations with the Syrian government as envisioned under a November roadmap.
