"I believe that new developments, concerning a ceasefire agreement which implementation may take some time, may delay the next round of talks in Geneva. I think it will be held soon, in the beginning of the next month," Ahmad said.
He added that an important condition for the ceasefire agreement to succeed is "to convince all members of the US alliance to respect it and start a dialogue with the Syrian government, which is an essential party to this agreement."
On January 29, talks between the Syrian government and the representatives of the opposition began in Geneva. UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said on February 3 that the talks had come to a temporary pause. The intra-Syria negotiations had been scheduled to resume on February 25.
