No confirmation of intra-Syria talks resumption in October

NEW YORK, Sep. 24 (MNA) - Bashar Jaafari expressed doubts on Friday over the possibility of holding a fresh round of intra-Syrian talks in October.

Syrian Envoy to UN Bashar Jaafari expressed doubts on Friday over the possibility of holding a fresh round of intra-Syrian talks in October.

"No. There is nothing that could confirm such a possibility [of the talks resumption in October]," Jaafari told RIA Novosti on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly answering a question whether new round of intra-Syria talks will be held next month.

The latest round of intra-Syrian talks collapsed in April in Geneva when members of the Syrian High Negotiations Committee walked away from negotiations, citing the failure of the Syrian government to commit to reconciliation process.

On Thursday, the participants of the meeting of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) failed to agree on the dates for the new round of the intra-Syria talks. Earlier in the day, UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura voiced hope that the negotiations would be resumed no later than in October.
