In Geneva, at the end of a gruelling day of discussions about the Syrian civil war, UN mediator Lakdar Brahimi said that after face-to-face discussions in the morning, and individual discussions with each side in the afternoon, progress was very slow.
He also said that he had warned both delegations about giving too many press briefings.
Lakhdar Brahimi said:
“There is apparently, the will to continue these discussions. Once again, we never expected any miracle, there are no miracles here. But we will continue and see.”
He said that both sides were still working on a way of evacuating civilians from Homs, and that talks were continuing on allowing a Red Crescent convoy of humanitarian aid into the besieged city.
