The UN began on Thursday preparatory meetings with participants in the discussions on Syrian crisis. Substantive discussions are to be opened on March 24 when the UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura returns to Geneva as Deputy Special Envoy Ramzy Ezzeldin Ramzy said.
Syrian government and rebel delegations have confirmed their attendance at peace talks set to resume in Geneva this week, the United Nations said Tuesday, despite renewed fighting around Damascus.
