    Talks on Syrian reconciliation may resume on July 12, according to diplomatic sources.

    NEW York (Sputnik) — Intra-Syrian talks may resume on July 12, diplomatic sources in the United Nations told Sputnik on Friday.

    "The date for the revival of intra-Syrian talks between the conflict parties is July 12," the sources said adding that the date is expected to be announced by UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura during the upcoming UN Security Council meeting scheduled for next week in New York.

    On Thursday, de Mistura said July was a priority date for the talks to resume.

    Syria has been mired in a civil war since 2011, with the Syrian army fighting numerous opposition factions and Islamic extremist groups.
