Second round of Syrian peace talks to go ahead in Geneva

Peace talks to try to end Syria’s civil war appear to have been agreed, however the date is yet to be confirmed.

Arab League Secretary-General, Nabil El Araby said after a meeting with the Syria’s international envoy that the talks would go ahead in Geneva.

“There are a lot of preparations and obstacles that we should overcome before this conference,” said El-Araby.

One obstacle might be, according to Lakhdar Brahimi, Arab League and UN envoy to Syria, whether Syria’s opposition is included in the talks.

Meanwhile Syrian TV has released pictures of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons inspecting what is thought to be a chemical site in the country.

The inspectors have nine months to oversee the destruction of the Assad government’s chemical weapons – one of the conditions of the civil war peace talks.
