GENEVA, January 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Progress at the inter-Syrian talks is very slow, but the process has been launched, U.N./LAS Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi said after the first round of Geneva talks.
The Syrian government and the opposition have sit down to one negotiating table for the first time to discuss steps towards terminating the war in Syria, Brahimi said.
The parties agreed that it was necessary to put an end to the Syrian people’s sufferings. They called for implementing the Geneva Communiqué, the U.N. official said.
However, he stressed that the parties’ approaches towards the settlement of the situation differed considerably.
Brahimi confirmed that the participants in the inter-Syrian talks would meet in Geneva for a new round of talks.
