Fresh Syria Talks in Geneva Scheduled for July 10

A fresh round of UN-sponsored Syria peace talks will begin on July 10 in Geneva, the UN envoy said Saturday.

Staffan de Mistura also said he intended to convene further talks in August and September. He added meetings on constitutional and legal issues will continue alongside the formal sessions.

The last round of UN-sponsored peace talks finished on May 19 with de Mistura telling the UN Security Council that “important gaps remain between the parties on major issues”, not least of which is the fate of President Bashar Assad.
