Mediator says Damascus 'delaying' Geneva talks: Diplomats

AFP , Thursday 13 Mar 2014

The international mediator on Syria briefed the UN Security Council Thursday that Damascus was delaying efforts to resume peace talks in Geneva designed to end the three-year-old civil war.

UN and Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi said the Syrian government was engaged in "delaying tactics" and that any re-election of President Bashar al-Assad would complicate the search for a political solution.
