UN Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura says he will continue to mediate peace talks in Geneva this week, despite the opposition's announcement of a "postponement."
De Mistura stresses that the opposition delegates informed him that they plan to stay in Geneva, even if they will suspend attending formal meetings at UN premises.
"It is one way for them to display their displeasure and concern" about ceasefire violations and problems with aid deliveries, he says.
The UN envoy says he hopes the opposition will continue to hold technical discussions with his team, adding that he plans to take stock and decide on the future schedule of the indirect talks on Friday.
