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.
