Syria peace talks to continue, says Brahimi

Geneva, Jan 28: Representatives of the Syrian government and opposition will continue talks Tuesday, said UN-Arab League Special Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi Monday.

Brahimi told a press conference that Monday’s negotiation repeated Sunday’s format, starting from joint session in the morning which discussed about the basic principles declared by the Syrian government, followed by the separate meetings between the special envoy himself and each party in the afternoon.

Brahimi said that discussions were under the way on how to implement the tentative agreement achieved Sunday between the government and opposition on the humanitarian issue in Homs to allow women and children out.
