UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — Talks between the Syrian government and opposition delegates are set to begin in the afternoon of March 9, the office of UN Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura said Tuesday.

"The United Nations Special Envoy for Syria, Mr. Staffan de Mistura, today announced that intra-Syrian peace talks will resume in the afternoon of 9 March 2016," the statement reads.

The crucial reconciliation talks were initially scheduled to restart on March 7. The date was postponed for two days in order to allow more time for "logistical and practical matters."

The negotiations will again aim at implementing last December’s UN Security Council Resolution 2254, which seeks to end bombardments in Syria and allow humanitarian access to besieged towns.
