Syria opposition reluctant to join new talks

The main Syrian opposition body, High Negotiations Committee, says it has not decided whether to attend the new Syria peace talks on March 10. A spokesperson said they are waiting for progress on the humanitarian issue and will respect for the ceasefire, but backers in Saudi Arabia still say President Bashar al-Assad must step down. The new round of talks will be the first since a truce between government forces and rebels began over a week ago. UN envoy Staffan de Mistura said Syrian peace talks are to resume on Thursday in Geneva, adding preparatory meetings will be held ahead of “in-depth discussions separately” with each faction.
