Syrian government delegation arrived in Geneva today for a fresh round of peace talks with opposition representatives, Syrian television said.

It said "the Syrian Arab Republic's delegation, headed by Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem, has arrived in Geneva to take part in a second round" of the talks starting on Monday".

The fresh round of a process dubbed "Geneva-2" comes 10 days after previous talks ended with no concrete agreement on Syria's crisis.

Al-Muallem is set to meet U.N League envoy "Lakhdar Brahimi" at 7:00 pm (1800 GMT) in Geneva, a source close to the regime delegation told AFP.

While the Syrian government delegation insists the talks focus on fighting terrorism the opposition demands the priority in Geneva be agreement on a transition.
