    The next round of the UN-backed intra-Syrian talks may be held on June 15, a source close to the negotiations told Sputnik.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The next round of the UN-backed intra-Syrian talks may be held on June 15, a source close to the negotiations told Sputnik.

    "I already know, I was told yesterday, this is almost official [that they will be held on] on June 15," the source said, when asked about the date of the next round of talks.

    Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups. A US-Russia-brokered ceasefire came into force across Syria on February 27, but it does not apply to terrorist organizations active in the country.
