Syrians peace negotiations continue

Syrian government and opposition delegates are starting a fresh round of U.N.-brokered peace talks.

The first face-to-face meetings mediated by U.N.-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi adjourned 10 days ago having achieved little beyond getting the warring sides into the same room.

Mr Brahimi began holding separate closed-door meetings with the government and opposition delegations Monday to try to set an agenda for the coming week. Prospects for common ground appear unlikely as the two sides continue to disagree on the core issue of President Bashar Assad’s future.
