GENEVA The United Nations Special Envoy for Syria hopes that a meeting expected to be held in Geneva next week with U.S. and Russian officials will pave the way for a resumption of peace talks between the warring parties, his spokeswoman said on Friday.
Jessy Chahine, spokeswoman for Staffan de Mistura, declined to give details of the talks or their participants. "Our hope is that any discussions on Syria will help move forward with the process so we can also get to starting the next round of intra-Syrian talks," she told a briefing in Geneva.
