UNITED NATIONS, February 27. /TASS/. The special envoy of the UN Secretary General for Syria, Staffan de Mistura plans to resume the talks between the government of President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian opposition on March 7 on the condition all the parties to the negotiations observe ceasefire.
De Mistura said it on Friday at a session of the UN Security Council. A total of 97 armed groups in Syria accepted the regime of ceasefire by midday Friday, February 26, he said at a briefing.
The agenda of the intra-Syrian talks remains the same: the talk will be about governing the country, the new constitution, presidential and parliamentary elections, Staffan de Mistura told journalists in Geneva.
The first stage of the talks will last three weeks, and then it will be necessary to assess the situation again with the Syrian parties, de Mistura said.
