    U.N. envoy Staffan de Mistura is struggling to get Syrian peace talks on track in Geneva, where Syrian government and opposition representatives are present but not yet fully involved in indirect negotiations. Discussions on Monday between the U.N. envoy and the Syrian government delegation were postponed, because the opposition insists on an end to airstrikes and siege conditions in rebel-held areas before it negotiates. VOA Europe Correspondent Luis Ramirez reports.

    The talks with the Syrian Government were postponed because de Mistura said he wanted to meet the opposition HNC first, which is scheduled for this afternoon. That is sensible, he will then have met both sides once and things can get moving tomorrow.
