An afternoon session in talks to end the war in Syria was cancelled on Tuesday, the opposition delegation said, citing differences over the goal of the talks.

“(International mediator) Lakhdar Brahimi cancelled the afternoon talks to give (Ibrahim) Jaafari time to think over Geneva 1,” opposition negotiator Ahmed Jakal told Reuters,
referring to the Syrian government chief negotiator.

“There is deep resistance by the regime to move the discussions onto the question of a transitional government.”
