U.N mediator "Lakhdar Brahimi" said today that he will meet both Syrian delegations separately on Thursday, a day ahead of their first negotiations when he will try to bring them into the same table.

Brahimi, speaking to a news conference after all-day ministerial talks in the Swiss resort of Montreux, first said it was not clear whether he would be able to bring two sides into the same room at the United Nations in Geneva on Friday.

He said later "we will try to see if we meet Friday morning separately and hopefully by Friday afternoon both sides will sit in one room".

Describing the challenge ahead, Brahimi said that"we have no illusion that it is going to be easy but we are going to try very hard".
