Syrian government returns to Geneva talks

The Syrian government delegation returned to Geneva on Sunday to resume UN-brokered talks on Syrian peace. Bashar al-Ja'afari, Syria's ambassador to the UN and chief negotiator, refused to respond to reporters' queries.

The 8th round of Syrian peace talks resumed last Tuesday despite the absence of the Syrian government delegation because of the opposition's insistence that President Bashar al-Assad not play any interim role in Syria's political transition.

The conflict in Syria has lasted for 7 years and killed 340,000 people.
