(Worthy News) - Talks on ending the war in Syria are expected to start on Friday and take six months, although invitations have still not been sent due to "intense disagreements", the U.N. Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura told a news conference on Monday.
"There are political risks. And you will hear them as soon as you will hear the fact that I intend to do them on the 29th and that we will be issuing invitations tomorrow," said De Mistura, who hopes to send out invitations on Tuesday.
Discussions on who should take part were ongoing in various capitals, including Washington, Moscow, Ankara and Riyadh, he said. [ Source ]
