The next round of talks aimed at easing the violence in Syria will be held at the UN's European headquarters in Geneva early next year, a UN spokesman said Tuesday.
"The talks will take place in Geneva, but we don't have the exact date," UN spokesman Rheal LeBlanc told AFP.
Last week, the UN Security Council gave its unanimous support to a plan to end Syria's brutal civil war by summoning armed groups and representatives of the national government to the negotiating table.
With crucial backing from the United States and Russia, the plan aims to install a ceasefire in Syria, possibly in January, when talks could also begin.
The UN special envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, said last week he would send out invitations to talks next month.
