(Geneva) – The UN-Arab League’s Syria envoy Lakhdar Brahimi met with US and Russian delegations to try to agree which nations should be invited to Syria peace talks in Geneva next month. Russian Deputy Foreign Ministers Mikhail Bogdanov and Gennady Gatilov, whose country is Syria’s main ally, and US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman were meeting with Brahimi in Geneva.
They also planned to expand the meeting to include diplomats from Britain, China and France, the other three permanent members of the 15-nation UN Security Council and from Syria’s neighbors, who have been struggling to cope with the conflict and the more than 2.3 million Syrian refugees.
Disputes over who should represent the Syrian opposition and government, and whether Iran, Saudi Arabia and other regional powers should be at the table, have blocked previous attempts to bring Syria’s warring sides for peace talks.
