Geneva: The UN said today that there was no postponement of Syria peace talks due to start tomorrow in Geneva, despite uncertainty around whether the main opposition umbrella group would attend.

There is “no postponement from our side,” Khawla Mattar, spokeswoman for the talks, told AFP as the High Negotiations Committee — formed last month in an effort to unite Syria’s fractious opposition — said in Riyadh it was waiting for answers from the United Nations before agreeing to attend.
