Brahimi in Talks with Muallem; to Meet Syrian Opposition Later
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - UN and Arab League Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi is in talks with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem.
He will meet Syrian opposition delegation at 16:00 pm local time.
That is according to ministerial sources, Voice of Russia reported.
The first day of talks in Switzerland, on Wednesday, was riddled with harsh denunciations made by both sides of the other’s lack of compromise and brutality on the ground during a fierce civil war.
Over 130,000 people are believed to have perished since the country’s civil war broke out in 2011. Nearly a third of Syria’s 22 million residents have been displaced, and half are in need of international aid, according to Reuters.
