Syrian opposition want Geneva talks on political transition

The next round of Syria peace talks in Geneva is expected to begin next week, on February 23, the United Nations announced Monday.

The United Nations plans to being its next round of negotiations next week aimed at finding an actual end to the almost six years of fighting in Syria.

"We want direct negotiations, we want to save time, we want a quick end to the suffering of the Syrian people", he said.

The two-day conference in Astana that begins Wednesday is aimed at strengthening a December 30 cease-fire.

Previous efforts, which have involved indirect negotiations brokered by the U.N.'s envoy for Syria, resulted in little progress to resolve a war that began as peaceful protests against Assad before spiraling into a multi-party conflict. The Syrian government has not yet responded to the report on state media.
