Peace talks aimed at ending the conflict in Syria will resume in Geneva on March 9, UN envoy Staffan de Mistura's office said Tuesday, announcing a two-day postponement.
"Intra-Syrian peace talks will resume in the afternoon of 9 March," de Mistura's office said in a statement.
"The 7th of March 2016 was initially set as the target date for the resumption of peace talks," but a short delay was needed "to allow adequate time to address logistical and practical matters."
