    GENEVA (Sputnik) — UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said Thursday he would hold bilateral meetings with participants to intra-Syrian talks in Geneva on Friday to decide on work plan for the talks.

    "Tomorrow, I intend to have bilateral meetings to elaborate with everyone procedure, because mediation procedure is crucial, and a work plan for this round," de Mistura told reporters.

    The UN special envoy also expressed hope that eventually there would be a unified opposition delegation to the talks.
