    The Moscow-Cairo opposition group expects the next round of the intra-Syrian talks to begin in mid-June, a member of the group told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    CAIRO (Sputnik) Last week, a source in the Syrian opposition told Sputnik said that the next round of Syrian proximity talks would take place on May 30 in the Swiss city of Montreux, instead of Geneva due to logistical reasons.

    "The next round of talks may take place in mid-June in Geneva, moving the talks to some other location from Geneva has not been proposed," Firas Khalidi said.

    Postponing the next round of talks is possible due to the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which starts on June 6.
