Syrian government and opposition have not agreed a date for a third round of negotiations in Geneva at the final session of the second round. The UN-mediated talks were conducted in a tense confrontational manner with little tangible progress.
The 90-minute meeting between the delegations on Saturday came the sixth and final scheduled day of the second round of negotiations.
“It was a short, tense session, dominated by differences over how to tackle the issues of violence and political transition. [UN special envoy for Syria Lakhdar] Brahimi set no date for a third round, but he made it clear he expects there will be one,” opposition negotiator Ahmad Jakal said.
