The Syrian government and the opposition met face to face on Tuesday and observed a minute of silence for people killed in the three year conflict after a first round of talks last month failed to make significant progress, delegates said. Syrian state news agency SANA said the morning's joint session started with a minute's silence "for the souls of the martyrs of the village of Maan in rural Hama." Opposition spokesman, Monzer Akbik, said that Tuesday's session was still focused on discussing what the schedule for the week should be and said the two sides were arguing over the length and number of meetings.
