After the breaking of a local ceasefire set back peace efforts, mediator Lakhdar Brahimi will meet representatives of the warring sides in Syria separately for the first few days of a second round of talk. In a letter reviewed by Reuters, Brahimi increased pressure on the two sides to show willingness in a peace process sponsored by Moscow and Washington that made no progress in the first round. He said he would talk to the two Syrian sides on their own for the next few days in hope of improving the negotiating atmosphere.
