Dmitry Peskov, the Russian Presidential spokesperson, expressed hope that the Syria peace talks in Geneva would  soon resume.

“One can express regret in this regard but no one expected that everything will be simple and quick,” he said.

“Of course it is obvious that moving forward will be difficult and we are hoping that the break will be followed by another round of these truly difficult talks,” Peskov added.

The suspension of the talks was announced on Wednesday by UN special envoy Staffan de Mistura.

Turkey’s President Erdogan said the talks were useless so long as Syrian forces and Russian airstrikes continued in the country.

China, however, called upon representatives of the Syrian government and the opposition to show sincerity during the course of peace talks.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said all parties should work hard and maintain the momentum for the talks, he noted.

“We really hope that all parties involved in the peace talks can proactively take confidence-building measures, show sincerity, meet each other halfway and cooperate with the mediation efforts of the UN special envoy,” he said.
