'UN envoy set to hold separate talks with Syrian govt., opposition delegations' [Roshan Salih @ PressTV]

The UN and Arab League envoy for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi is set to hold separate talks with representatives from the Syrian government and foreign-backed opposition in Switzerland.

The meetings come ahead of face-to-face talks between the Syrian and opposition delegations. They're expected to discuss improving access for aid supplies, prisoner swaps and local ceasefires. The Geneva-two conference on Syria started on Wednesday in the Swiss city of Montreux. Delegations from over 40 countries came together to find a way to put an end to the conflict that has dragged on for nearly three years. There have been serious doubts about the fruitfulness of the event with widening divisions among the participants on the agenda of the conference.
