U.N. says expects Syria talks with opposition on Sunday | Reuters

GENEVA United Nations Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura said on Friday he hoped to hold talks with the Syrian opposition delegation on Sunday.

“I have good reasons to believe that they are actually considering this very seriously, and therefore to be in a position on, probably, Sunday, to actually start the discussion with them, in order to be able to proceed with the intra-Syrian talks,” De Mistura said.
