    The second week of intra-Syrian talks in Geneva began with a meeting of UN Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura with the Syrian government delegation headed by Bashar Jaafari, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

    GENEVA (Sputnik) — Later in the day, Mistura will also meet with Syrian opposition's High Negotiations Committee (HNC) formed in Riyadh.

    The current round of talks is expected to finish on April 27, several representatives of various opposition groups told Sputnik earlier.

    However, HNC spokesman Riyad Naasan Agha told Sputnik earlier on Monday that the collapse of this round is possible.

    Last week, HNC said they were going to speed up the negotiations process.
