De Mistura: 2nd round of inter-Syrian talks in Geneva will not start until the both sides are ready

Geneva, SANA-The UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura will not start the second round of inter-Syrian talks in Geneva planned for February 25 until the Syrian government and the opposition are ready for it, spokeswoman of the Special Envoy for Syria Ms. Khawla Mattar announced on Friday.

“The special envoy does not want to start the talks again unless both parties to the talks are ready and well prepared,” Mattar said.
