HNC members are reportedly divided on whether it is necessary to continue the talks amid escalation of violence in Aleppo.
With the escalation of clashes in Syria's northern Aleppo province, a member of the HNC decried what they termed "the regime's offensive" and said it could lead to the collapse of the current round of talks.
On April 15, the HNC accused the Syrian government of launching offensives prior to Geneva negotiations. The committee accused Damascus of preferring a military solution to the situation over a political one.
The new round of intra-Syrian talks began in Geneva on April 13. According to de Mistura, this round of talks is focusing on Syria's political transition, governance, and the constitution.
