The head of the Syrian opposition's negotiating team said on Tuesday he was not optimistic about upcoming peace talks in Geneva.

Assad Zoubi was quoted by Arabic news channel Al-Hadath that recent diplomatic moves "did not give cause for optimism over the negotiations".

The United Nations special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, "cannot impose conditions" on the opposition team, Zoubi added without elaborating.
