MOSCOW Russia's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, Alexei Borodavkin, said on Thursday Russia expected talks aimed at resolving the Syria crisis to resume no later than Feb. 25, Russian news agencies reported.

Borodavkin said the reason for the pause in peace talks had been because of the "unconstructive position" of the opposition delegation.
