GENEVA, April 18. /TASS/. Ceasefire regime in Syria remains stable, despite the escalation of tensions, UN Secretary General's Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said on Monday.
"No one can deny that the current fighting, particularly in Aleppo, is becoming particularly worrisome, but our analysis is that truce is still holding in many areas," he said.
According to the UN mediator, Russia, the United States and other participants of the International Syria Support Group are expected to hold a meeting if the situation aggravates.
"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.
"We will continue our discussions with all sides and take stock on Friday," he said.
Under the UN mediator's words, transitional government body "idea is not dead".
