GENEVA (Sputnik) — The Syrian Opposition's High Negotiations Committee has asked UN's Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura to suspend the Geneva talks until ceasefire violations come to an end, a source close to the negotiations told Sputnik on Monday.
"HNC will stay in Geneva but has asked for a short break while violations are ended," the source said.
"We will see what happens today, and what will be the reaction of the regime and of the international community. We are not aiming at derailing the talks, it is the regime that is doing it," HNC member Hassan Abdul Azim said.
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.
HNC calls on the international community to deploy international observers in Syria to monitor the ceasefire and deliveries of humanitarian aid, Hassan Abdul Azim told Sputnik.
"We see that agreements on humanitarian aid delivery and on the cessation of hostilities are observed by one side only, by the opposition, and are not observed by the government. It requires a clear position from the international community, and its assistance to the Syrian people — sending a monitoring mission to observe the lifting of sieges, humanitarian aid deliveries, ceasefire and release of detainees," Azim said.
