#AceNewsServices says `Brahimi cancels session of Syria peace talks’
An afternoon session of talks to end the war in Syria was cancelled Tuesday.
The opposition delegation cited differences over the goal of the talks. International mediator Lakhdar Brahimi “canceled the afternoon talks to give [Ibrahim] Jaafari time to think over Geneva 1,” opposition negotiator Ahmed Jakal told Reuters, referring to the Syrian government’s chief negotiator.
The Syrian delegation “resisted” moving discussions onto the question of a transitional government, Jakal said.
