Syria returns to Geneva negotiating table | News

Geneva (Reuters) – The Syrian government delegation has returned to the Geneva peace talks. Chief negotiator Baschar al-Jaafari flew back from Beirut to the Swiss UN city on Sunday. At the beginning of December, he had left the eighth negotiation round of UN mediator Staffan de Mistura over allegations by the opposition that President Bashar al-Assad could not play a role in a transitional arrangement for Syria. Western diplomats expressed doubts as to whether the Syrian government was ready for serious talks. The fact that the delegation returned later than announced would prove that it was not seriously interested in a political solution, said a diplomat. The current Geneva talks are the eighth edition of the negotiations for a diplomatic solution to the civil war that has been raging for six years, in which hundreds of thousands People were killed. According to previous plans, they should last until 15 December. The UN diplomat de Mistura commutes back and forth between the delegations of the Syrian opposition and the government in different rooms. According to him, the talks are about a constitution for Syria as well as parliamentary and presidential elections under UN observation. In addition, twelve "core principles" were negotiated, to which de Mistura so far but did not specify. A breakthrough is not expected given the deep divide between government and opposition positions. The government in Damascus had recently demanded that the opposition end its armed resistance.
