"Yes, this is true. Switzerland is helping to organize intra-Syrian negotiations held by the UN. Therefore, we have allowed entrance into Switzerland to all delegations invited by the UN," department spokesperson Jean-Marc Crevoisier told RIA Novosti.
Crevoisier did not specify the number of delegations representing the Syrian government and the opposition, which should arrive in Geneva on Friday to take part in the much-anticipated intra-Syrian talks on Syria's civil war settlement.
Syria has been mired in a civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting a number of opposition factions and extremist groups.
In December, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution on Syrian settlement, which reaffirmed the goals of the Vienna agreements to bring the entire spectrum of political groups in the crisis-torn country to the negotiating table and stated that the next round of the talks would take place this month.
