GENEVA, February 22. /TASS/. UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said on Wednesday that he did not expect any breakthrough at a new round of intra Syrian talks that starts on Thursday.
"Am I expecting a breakthrough? No, I’m not expecting a breakthrough," de Mistura told a news conference ahead of the meeting.
"I’m not expecting an immediate breakthrough from this negotiation, but the beginning of a series of rounds that will be able to go much more in depth into the substantive issues," the envoy said.
