Syria peace talks headed into a third day on Wednesday after sparking warnings of failure, but the evacuation of civilians from besieged rebel-held areas of the city of Homs was set to resume.
Little progress towards breaking the deadlock was apparent Tuesday, despite appeals from UN-Arab League mediator Lakhdar Brahimi to end the “nightmare” of the Syrian people.
The veteran peacemaker was downbeat after a three-hour session in Geneva Tuesday marking the first face-to-face talks between Syria’s rival camps this month.
“The beginning of this week is as laborious as it was the first week,” Brahimi told reporters. “We are not making much progress.”
