MOSCOW, April 4. /TASS/. Syria’s government delegation will arrive for talks in Geneva on April 14, Vitaly Naumkin, a senior political adviser to United Nations Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura, said on Monday.
"The logic is as follows: we begin another round of talks on April 11 not to drag out the pause as a long break may be harmful for the continuity of the process," he said in an interview with the Rossiya-24 television channel. "Contact with other delegations will start and on April 14 the government delegation will join us."
The adviser also stated that the issue of the fate of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad will not be raised at the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva for a long time.
"This issue was not discussed at all [at the round of the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva on March 14-24]," Naumkin said. "It is difficult to say how long this will last [the issue will not be raised - TASS]. I think, however, that this will last long enough."
