De Mistura meets with Syrian regime and opposition delegates in Geneva

GENEVA — UN Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, on Tuesday met a Syrian regime delegation, headed by Bashar Jaafari, at the first day of a sixth round of peace talks in Geneva.

De Mistura also met with Syria’s opposition delegation, led by Nasr al-Hariri from the High Negotiations Committee.

The UN-backed negotiations focused on four separate “baskets”, governance, a new constitution, elections and combating terrorism in the war-ravaged country. The new round of talks is expected to end on Friday.
