Syrian talks to continue: Lakhdar Brahimi
Geneva: The UN-Arab League Special Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi said on Tuesday that the Syrian talks would continue despite the fact that any breakthrough was yet to achieved.
The joint sessions between delegations of Syrian government and the opposition have not "achieved any breakthrough" up to now, Xinhua quoted him as saying, while adding but it was good enough for all parties are still at it and the session will continue on Wednesday morning.
Brahimi confirmed at a press conference in the late afternoon of the fourth day of face-to-fact talks between the warring parties that the two sides only held discussions with the mediation of him in the morning, not in the afternoon.
"I have suggested them and they have agreed that we do not meet this afternoon and that we all prepare ourselves for what I hope will be a better session tomorrow morning," Brahimi said.
No one party was to blame for the adjournment and it was his decision to cancel the meeting without any request or pressure from any of the two sides, he added.
