Syria's Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said Friday the government will take part in the second round of talks as part of Geneva II conference slated for Feb 10. Mekdad said, "The participation of the government delegation in the next round of talks in Geneva has been decided." Adding that the delegation would focus to discuss the items of the Geneva I communique, which concluded in 2012, Xinhua reported citing the official SANA news agency. Last Friday, the first round of talks in Geneva between the delegations of the Syrian government and the opposition Syrian National Coalition ended without achieving results with both sides sticking to their respective demands.
