UNITED NATIONS, March 13, /ITAR-TASS/. The United Nations and Arab League special envoy on Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, is expected to make a report to the UN Security Council on Thursday on interim results of talks between the Syrian government and opposition held at the beginning of 2014.
A peace conference on Syria, dubbed Geneva-2, organized by Russia and the United States, sought to negotiate a solution to the Syrian crisis. No particular progress was reported after two rounds of the conference in January and February 2014. The parties to the Syrian conflict agreed to continue their discussions.
Fighting between Syrian government troops and rebels has left over 100,000 people dead and displaced millions since its start in 2011, according to UN statistics.
