"High Negotiation Committee wants to postpone formal participation to express their own displeasure about the humanitarian and truce situation," de Mistura said, adding that opposition intend to remain in Geneva in their hotel and possibly to continue technical discussions with the Un on political issues.

The intra-Syrian talks in Geneva will continue till April 22, when the provisional results will be announced, de Mistura said.
