GENEVA, January 25, 22:03 /ITAR-TASS/. Not much has been achieved at the Syrian talks in Geneva but things are moving, the Joint Special Envoy of the United Nations and the League of Arab States for the Syrian Crisis, Lakhdar Brahimi, said after two face-to-face meetings between the Syrian government and opposition delegations on Saturday, January 25.
“We haven’t achieved much but we are continuing,” Brahimi said at a news conference.
He said the delegations did not talk to each other directly but through him.
Brahimi said that if the sides reached an agreement on Sunday, January 26, a humanitarian convoy could go to Homs the next day.
At the talks on Sunday, he also intends to raise the question of prisoner releases in Syria.
A representative of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces said the sides would start discussing a transitional governing body on January 27.
